I have a dry patch on my nipple - which is clearing but the skin is now a different colour underneath - and I can notice it quite clearly - I suffer from itchy breasts (both) and told they were hormonal due to my age - 42. We have no breast cancer history that I am aware of in our family.
My question is - which doctor should I go to first - as I live in Greece and we go to specialists - side stepping the GP. Should I go to a skin or gyno?
Any help would be appreciated - really want to check it out. Thanks
If they have breast specialists there, Jayne, you could bypass everyone else and go right to the doctor who'll be able to give you the clearest answer. A breast specialist deals with ALL breast issues. Next best choice would be your gyno. You want to rule out Paget's Disease, which is a rare breast cancer that can start with changes in the nipple/areola. While it's most probably something else, it would be good to have that possibility checked, OK? Good luck - PJH
