Left Nipple Itch

hi, i'm 21 yrs old. my left nipple has been itching for maybe a couple of months now (although not everyday). my left nipple looks slightly bigger than my right one but it's not scaly or anything. i'm not having breast pains, or nipple discharge, or other symptoms of breast cancer, just this itchy left nipple. but i'm worried about what's causing it to itch. please help me. thanks!

Answer

Some difference in breast and/or nipple size is very common and not usually a cause for concern if it's always been there. Read this article about nipple problems to help you decide if you need to call a doctor.
