My husband has a breast mass under his left nipple which is very painful. He has had a mammogram and an ultrasound. The doctor was asking about his medication but the doctor never verified if it was drug interaction.
Here is some information that may help..
It sounds like your husband's doctor was investigating gynecomastia - a condition that affects the breast tissue of males - and is sometimes caused by medications.
Gynecomastia is the development of abnormally large breasts in males. The condition may occur in one or both breasts and begins as a small lump beneath the nipple, which may be tender. Causes include side effects of some medications.
Gynecomastia is listed as a possible side effect of
omeprazole (Prilosec) see https://www.drugs.com/sfx/omeprazole-side-effects.html and
rosuvastatin (Crestor) see https://www.drugs.com/sfx/rosuvastatin-side-effects.html
