    Christine, please read our post on nipple issues; you might find it helpful. But ultimately, only a doctor can tell you what this might be. Once you've been feeling it for more than a month, you can assume it's not related to your menstrual cycle. In general, a sore or painful nipple isn't a breast cancer symptom; nevertheless, this qualifies as a breast change, and you should consider having it checked out. If nothing else, it would be nice to get it treated; sounds painful! Best of luck - PJH
