Answer

If you're getting your period, chances are you're not pregnant; it's possibl, but not likely. Itchy nipples might be hormonal, especially since it seems to come (and go away, right?) in synch with your menstrual cycle. So long as it continues to appear and disappear, I don't think you have to worry about it being cancer; cancer usually appears, and stays. However, if the itching becomes more constant -; and especially if it's accompanied by other symptoms (a lump, discharge, redness and swelling, pain), you'd want to see a doctor to find out what's causing it.
