Hey I am a 13 year old male almost 14 in the end of september.

My problem is with my nipples.
They are like swollen and very large.
It is very embarrising to take of my shirt.

Please tell me what is wrong with them and if it will go away.

Dear Nick85
In regards to your nipples being swollen, I wonder
if you have had any blood tests carried out.
There may be an underlying hormonal problem which is the cause of this. If you haven't had this investigated then go and see your Doctor and say you want blood tests to see if a cause for the swelling can be found.
Most of the times it tends to be a hormonal problem.
