Skin Problems Problem with my pair

I just recently noticed that I have a one spot on each of my male pigs. It is just a tiny spot that looks like something is coming out, almost like a tit. I am unsure what it is. I touched it to see if it caused any discomfort but it didn't seem to. Here is a picture of it. I have no idea what it is so any advice would help. If it's due to their cage being unsanitary it has only been temporary due to me literally just graduating and work in between. I try not to neglect them :( [GuineaPigCages.com] Problem with my pair
 
All male and female mammals have breast/or nipples.
What you have here is a nipple.
 
I feel a little stupid. I had a feeling it was something like that. It is just one or at least I can't see anymore. I feel relieved. Don't judge me! D:
 
I was honestly about to ask the same question! I just adopted my first pig, a male, and only checked him out really thoroughly once I got him home. I was checking his skin and fur when I noticed a black "sore" or "skin tag" (black fur on that side). It worried me until I read this thread- my little guy has one on the other side, a pink one under white fur. I FOUND NIPPLES! :) Haha!
 
Not quite, @MrWhistles. Male horses don't have nipples, and neither do male mice. Or so says Wikipedia, anyway.

Yeah, sometimes I forget the animal that I have the MOST experience with is, in fact, a mammal. I should of rephrased that to "most mammals.
