Dear Anonymous, great to hear that your husband reported the hard knob behind one of his nipples. Men are usually very slow at seeking help when they are not well. It is important that your husband make an appointment with his doctor for a thorough examination and referral for a Mammogram. Many people are not aware of the fact that men can also get breast cancer. Breast cancer is usually not painful in the beginning, however, one should never take any chances in having something like this attended to. Please provide your husband with the necessary support and urge him to make an appointment with his doctor immediately. (MCH).
