I Have A Little Bit Pain In My Right Nipple And It Is Swollen When Compared To Left Nipple

Hi, i am reva and iam 26 years old, past three days my right side nipple is paining a little bit and compared to left side nipple its swollen and when i press it it pains a little and i didn't consult any doctor. Is there is any complication with these symptoms plz give me suggestion.

Answer

Reva, because so many things could cause nipple irritation and swelling, I think it would be fine to wait a few days to see if the problem improves on its own. Of course, if you run a fever, if the pain becomes severe, or if it doesn't get better in a week or two, consult a doctor. These could be signs of an infection. There is a rare type of breast cancer called Paget's Disease of the Breast that causes an eczema-like rash on the nipple, so if the problem continues, it is important to see a doctor.
