Conditions with symptom: 'third nipple'
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!!
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'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 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?!
Hi I'm 17 and one of my nipples looks inverted and has been this way for as long as I can remember, however I don't think it is an inverted nipple as it is like a cut in my nipple. My nipple can become erect but is sore and sometimes has white gunk. I am very embarrassed about this.
can anyone help? i have found a lump in my breast and its hard as a rock, its very close to my nipple area and when i get an nipple erection e.g when its cold or after shower the breasts nipple with the lump on it does change you can say it kinda sinks in a little bit, also that one breast leaks clear/whitey liquid and also the breat colour has changed and size.. please anyone im scared thank you
you may wanna go to the doctor. My friend had the same symptoms and she was diagonosed with breast cancer. It could also just be an infection but its better to be safe than sorry.
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 16 and my vitiligo first showed on my nipple a few years ago. The edge of the nipple doesn't really raise when erect so it's completed covered half of my nipple. I noticed when on holiday that it's spread to my back and stomach in patchy dots (Although I don't stay out in the sun much abroad, stay covered up when out and also apply a high spf lotion too). I know there is no cure - i've tried prescribed creams and I've also got skin camouflage make up from the Red Cross, alongside I've tried fake tanning on the area's but never works...BUT my question is, does the melanin ever "come back" to the pigment? Also, can you (skin) graft on the nipple? Because i'm really insecure about it and would love to have that done if possible. Thank you!
I have the exact same problem, I'm eighteen and have had it there all of my life, the rest of my body doesn't bother me but I'm so self conscious about my nipple and I'd love to know if I could get a skin graft or tattoo over it? Would be interested in hearing back from you if you do find a way?

You might need to get checked out for breast cancer. If you have lumps or pain around your nipples, or even up above that, you should definitely get it checked out before you wait any longer.
