Yes, gynecomastia (enlarged breasts in men) is a known side effect of spironolactone. As the breast grows this is causing the nipple pain.
If you are really uncomfortable with this side effect please discuss with your doctor. If there are alternate medication options for the condition you are being treated for... then your doctor may change you to that medicine. Unfortunately this side effect of spironolactone will not go away while you are on it.
