Hi, i am 18 years old and have had a sore itchy nipple for a few months now. When i have itched the nipple it has split and bled slightly. Now my nipple always seems to have discharge on the top of it, or it seems really dry. I have tried moisturising it, but it doesn't stop the itching and discharge. My breast has also become very sore now, as if it is bruised and it feels very tender when i touch the nipple. Should i go and see my GP?

Hi I am 21 and have also been suffering from a sore itchy nipple too. My right one seems to have dry skin all around the nipple and i have also tried to keep it well moisturised. Really dont want to go to my GP as only have a male GP in the surgery i go to and i feel way too uncomfortable.
i am 28 and and have a green discharge from left nipple, i get painful abcesses all over the breast. i have spoken to my doctor about this but he wont send me for tests and i am concerned about breast cancer as there is history in my mothers side, the nipple gets sensitive and i have to squeeze the discharge out and sometimes it can be a a couple of drops or a bigger amount. i have a white discharge from right nipple but dont tend to get abcesses on that breast. i have pcos and have had it a few years and there is no chance of being pregnant as i have not had a period over a year due to depro shot. I need help and advice as it worries me and my partner, i have tried the breast test and feel loads of small lumps so not sure what is normal and what isnt, as well as what feels like swollen tubes, i am reall concerned as this has been going on for a few months? my breasts went from a 42dd to a 42g, i also find that i sweat alot under my breast and between, i have considered breast reduction but cannot afford it and my doctor is no help at all he always dismisses things.
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'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'm not sure if I have a third nipple. It's on my lower abdomen diagonally below my bell button and it's pink almost exactly like my nipples on my breasts. It looks kind of like it has a small areola and a tiny nipple inside it but I'm not sure. Could this be a third nipple?
I have nipple discharge in one breast that only happens when I squeeE it. It's like a clear to milky colour. I have pain in the leaking breast but only really when it's being pressed on. I have had a prolactain level blood test done and that has come back normal. I don't have any lumps or changes to my breast or nipple. My doctor says it's normal and nothing can be done about it. But I am really getting freaked out by it especially when I hear it can be a sign of breast cancer. Pls tell me what is wrong and if it is dangerous Thank u x
I have weird spots around my nipple and sometimes I notice that my nipple is not vissable. I'm 13 and I am 34A, what shall I do? Or is it normal for you not to see the nipple?!
Hello, I am 14 and around the time I ovulate I get this hard yellow skin over my nipple which I have read that is discharge. I finished my period 2 days ago and my nipple got sore today all of a sudden and it looks cracked because I could see the smallest drop of blood. I have checked my breasts for lumps and there is none. My breasts were also very itchy this morning. I am also a 32B. Please can you give me an answer, I'm scared it could be serious :/ Thank you for taking the time to read this.
