  • Bump on 13 year old's Areola

    Hello, I'm a 13 year old male, and I have what I think is a Montgomery Gland, but it's bigger than the others, and I can feel it slightly under the surface of the skin. Is this normal? It's symmetrical, round, and about twice as big as the other glands.

    My right breast has been itchy since January. I saw my OB in January and he did an exam. He saw and found nothing he would be concerned about. He told me to try Benadryl cream on it. I did and it went away. I saw a dermatologist who also found nothing. It’s a surface itch and it’s not consistent. Some...
