Males and females make both female and male hormones. The ratio we make depends on our sex. Males make more testosterone than females and females make more estrogen than males.
When puberty starts, production of both increases with the dominant one really increasing. Because of this, when a boy starts puberty he also increases his estrogen production. In many boys (about 20%) this causes a temporary growth of breast tissue, a condition called gynecomastia. Nipples will swell, they become more sensitive, they might even get actual breast growth. Fortunately, it's temporary and usually doesn't last more than a year. When testosterone production is at its peak its ratio to estrogen is much higher and the breast symptoms go away.
It's the same reason why older women sometimes begin to grow facial hair (estrogen production drops and the ratio is closer), and men have less facial and body hair (testosterone production drops and the ratio is closer).
Yes, this is perfectly normal. The lump behind the breast is called the thelarche, for it to form is normal.
stoneys - caused by a higher than normal estrogen level
That I totally normal I'm 13 and I have the same thing except one is bigger and the other one is smaller that means that your boobs are going to grow
Were all have 'bumps' in the dark area around the nipple. As to the tenderness, he may be responding to new surges in hormones now.
If you feel a lump or mass behind your nipple which you have not noticed in the past, it is very important to have this evaluated by a doctor. Though not widely publicized, men DO get breast cancer.
Answer I'm a 34 year old male.. not a doctor but I too had this condition at this age. I was told it was part of my body maturing, and that some boys get this and some don't. I think it has a name, but I'm not sure of it now, but it deals with when boys start to grow breasts.
If You Look Under a Snail You Will Either see Just a Flat bit Or 2 Little Bumps, These Bumps are Hard To See So Look Carefully. With Bumps Is A Female and Without Bumps Is A Male. Hope This Helped Ya xxxx Btw Im A 10 Year Old And I Learnt This At School Last week
Go see your family doctor. It may or may not be serious. Go visit the Doc.
6~8 weeks for a light heal, no piercing is considered actually healed till it's at least a year old. But by about 6~8 is good for what we call a light heal.
