Conditions with symptom: 'inverted nipples'
Hi I'm 27 and have had inverted nipples all my life. About 3yrs ago I noticed that I had white puss coming out my inverted nipples and the smell really bad. I went to my doctor then an gave me some cream, that didn't really work and now they are very itchy and sore at times. Specially once I've been in the gym I notice that the smell comes back once I been in the gym. But it does come and go but mostly stays. Is there anything wrong with my inverted nipples? Please help
Could my inverted nipples be a sign of cancer? I'm 15 and have inverted nipples. I'm a size 32e and have a rather small figure. I've had inverted nipples for quite a while now, or since I've noticed them at least and they don't ever become erect. Not in the cold or anything. I know it's a stretch but breast cancer also runs in my family. And i know that inverted nipples is a symptom. I know it is very rare to have it this young, but I'm just trying to cross out all things. Having quite large breast and a small body gives me a great amount of back pain. I also have some pain above my breast near my armpits. I'm going into cosmetology so I'll be standing all day. Any ideas to help with the pain? And any ideas about the nipples and cancer?
hi , i`m 15 and i`m abit worried because i havent got what you call normal nipples, i never thoght about it before untill i saw one of th shows , and i saw " inverted nipples" could i have inverted nipples or could they develop late ???
I think I have 1 inverted nipple, and 1 normal one. The inverted nipple isn't fully inverted, it is inverted in the middle part of the nipple. It does come out if I keep touching it ( it becomes hard ) and the whole nipple could be seen, sometimes, with a tiny small folding. The other nipple seems at all fine. The "inverted" nipple is always inverted, as long as I remember. May I ask, is this "shy", " inverted " nipples? Or another thing?
One of my nipples is like more down and a weirder shape to the other its scary and weird the others perfectly fine but my left is totally odd its embarrassing is this normal I'm only 14 ://
I have exactly the same!! I'm trying to find out what it is but can never find anything related to it!! It makes me so uncomfortable and I still hate to get my boobs out in front of my boyfriend!! Hopefully your question will help me out too!!
I have Inverted Nipples and all the nipples on these pictures are normal, whats the percentage of women in the UK that have inverted Nipples & are there any risks?
I'm 20 years old and both of my nipples are inverted. my right nipple is usually out but becomes inverted sometimes while my left is usually inverted and comes out if it's stimulated enough. I also have discharge that's white from both of my nipples but it's very little and does not smell. And I have white bumps on both of my nipples they sort of seem like zits because I can pop them but I'm not sure what they are. I also accidentally cut the tip of my left nipple 2 years ago so now the skin on the tip of that nipple is lighter than the one on my right nipple. I have embarrassing nipples and need help. Any advice?
I've always had inverted nipples, and they are well and truly inverted. My problem is is that i really want to get them pierced, but unsure if thats possible? or how it would be done? and i feel too embarressed to go into the piercing studio to ask. Has anyone else who has inverted nipples attempted to get them pierced, or know if its possible?
i have inverted nipples i have 1 child already and am pregnant again can you breastfeed with inverted nipples? its to embarrassing to go to the doctor. is there anything that can be done to fix them as i really want to take my little one swimming but am to embarrassed??
I've had them all my life and breastfeed both my children with no issues. Talk to your doctor about yours as eveyone is different.
I've had a bad habit of picking the yellow solid substances from my inverted nipples.(for around half a year I think-I've stopped now. Will this in any way harm or affect the future possibility of my inverted nipples from protruding?
I have inverted nipples, im 14&its really embarrassing and i think people are starting t get the idea, i have been told about getting your nipples pierced and leaving the piercings in for 2 years, then take them out they arent inverted anymore?is this true; if not, please give me options on how to help other than surgery..
Your body is still growing and developing and you have many more years of your breasts developing. Many girl have nipples that don't stick out all the time and are flush with the darker pigment. Getting them peirced and having them forced to stick out could be very unconfrotable and you may regret it later, also getting your nipples peirced also causes trauma to the nipple that will never be the same way again...plus it might not give you the results that you desire. Everyone has things about their body growing up that they are unsure about, but when you look back ten years from now it will probally not bother you anymore but if you still are unsure ask your GP before you think about any peircing so you can be fully informed before you make that decision....good luck!
