Itchy Nipples And Sharp Pains

My left nipple constantly itch and i get sharp pains time to time on the same side. Last september i a lump removed from my left breast and eversince then all these problems started happening. Is it normal?

Answer

Sheena, normal is different for everyone; this sounds like a nerve issue to me. Perhaps the surgeon inadvertently cut or damaged a nerve, and you're having pain and itchiness? Please read our post on nipple issues. And our post on breast pain. Perhaps you'll find some insight in either (or both) of those. Also - have you asked your doctor about this? That would also be a good idea. Good luck - PJH
