I Have A Dividing Line Through My Nipple And I Have Read This Could Possibly Be A Sign Of Breast Cancer But When The Nipple Is Erect The Line Is Less Noticeable Should I Still Contact My Doctor

Answer

If you have always had this line, then it is just the way your breasts are. If this is a change in the usual appearance of your breast, you should contact your doctor, especially if it has lasted longer than a month. I'm not familiar with a dividing line being a breast cancer symptom, but I don't understand the size and depth of this line. An inverted nipple (nipple that points in) can be a breast cancer symptom if it is a change. Some women have nipples that are naturally inverted, and that's their normal.
