    Hi - Did your nipple start hurting after your mammogram? If after, it could be that the pressure of the mammogram ruptured a blood vessel in that very sensitive area, and you're feeling the pain and pressure. If it started hurting before, then it could be any number of things... though probably not cancer. Since it's obviously painful and bothering you, I'd give the doctor a call, see what's up and how you can get some relief. Good luck - PJH

      Hi - This doesn't sound like a typical breast cancer symptom, but if it's new, it qualifies as a breast change, and should be looked at if it lasts longer than a month. I'd suggest you see if you can get a free mammogram - please read our guide to mammograms for underserved women for more information. Good luck - PJH
