My daughter is 15 months old and for several weeks I have noticed that she has a hard mass under one of her nipples. I'm trying not to overreact, but am worried that this could be an indication of something else. My grandmother has previously made comments that her nipples aren't flat like most children. They do look similar to when a young girl begins to develop breasts, but I assumed it was from the hormones that I was passing to her in my breastmilk. I thought her nipples would flatten out as her nursing has decreased but they never have and now I can feel a hard mass under the nipple and it hasn't gone away. She is otherwise healthy and happy but I am concerned. What could this be?
Thank you

Did you ever get an answer to your question? Our baby has the same thing, and we are planning to call our pediatrician on Monday.

I just came across this post and saw that there weren't any responses. Unfortunately, I just noticed the same thing in my 4-month old daughter. She has a hard round mass under her right nipple and the nipple looks a little different in color, almost bruised, and it doesn't seem totally flat like her left nipple. She is a breastfed baby, although we are supplementing with formula. I'm wondering if it could be the hormones in my breastmilk. She goes to her pedi. on Friday for her 4-month check up so I will ask him. Hopefully it is nothing!

Hello! I found a hard mass under my six month old's right nipple. Her Dr. said not to worry, but to keep an eye on it. I am still worried!! Has anyone heard anything?

We just found a lump under my baby's left nipple. My baby is 7 months old. We are really concerned because in addition to having a hard mass under her nipple, it is white in color, there is no redness or infection though. We are calling her pediatrician tomorrow.

I've just discovered a mass under my 8mos daughter nipple, like everyone else. Does anybody know what this is. I do have an appointment tomorrow, but I'm going nuts waiting!! She is also breastfed and supplemented with formula...and I'm completely healthy (no smoking, drinking or even take tylenol etc)

SCROLL DOWN TO "CHEST" = they mention estrogen, notice all our infants are female. but they hav been found in males as well.

"Breast Cancer in Children:
Breast Cancer is unusual in a young girl and most lumps or masses that are seen will be benign (non-cancerous). As mentioned earlier less than 0.1% of all breast cancer occurs in children. "

there's some good news! :-D

My 2 year old little girls nipple is white on the tip and always hard. It's getting bigger and you can see it sticking out through her shirts. Her pediatrician said it was nothing and it would go away during puberty. I'm going to take her with me to my next OB/GYN appt. to have him look at it. At the rate it's growing I'll have to put her in bras at a very young age so you can't see it through her shirts. She is constantly tugging on it and I know she'll be self conscious about it because people are always asking me what it is.

Has anyone received a better answer than "it's nothing and will go away eventually"? %-)

My 18 month old girl also has this on her left nipple. I noticed it when she was born but assumed it was hormonal and would pop or heal or reabsorb or something like that. Now it seems to be bigger or more pronounced and is hard. Maybe that's because she has discovered it and is always picking at it when her shirt is off or she is in the bathtub.

She will be going to the pediatrician soon for her 18 month check up and I'm going to ask about it then. I'll post an update after her appointment.

I just noticed the same thing in my 6 month old daughter. I took her to the doctor but he told me it was common and to just keep an eye on it. He said it was most possible hormonal.
