My nipple has been tender and the area around it has been sore and it hurts to push on and around the area. There is a noticeable "firmness" behind it. It's embarrassing. The only reason it's embarrassing is because a "guy" is not supposed to have "problems" with his breasts. It's a "girl" problem. My intent is going to be discussing this with my doctor and taking it from there. I guess I'm just venting about my intitial shock and first thoughts.
