12 year old son has lump under his nipple

Recommended Posts

First we will be going to the Dr tomorrow since today is Sunday.  

Last night my son told my husband that he felt a lump under one of his nipples.  I felt it myself and it feels like fatty tissue.  It's soft, movable and right under his nipple.  I went to Dr Google ( I know, I know) and it doesn't appear to be anything bad. I read that it can happen during puberty and it's normal?  So I guess my questions is has anyone experienced this with their kids or themselves?  I'm really trying not to freak out (I did last night) since there is nothing I can do today anyway.  Just looking for any insight?  Thanks.

Sounds like a Lipoma to me. I used to get them when I was younger. If it is a Lipoma, then you are OK.
