My Nipples Are Pierced, I Have A Bump, Normal?

I have my nipples pierced for a couple of months now, and I recently saw a bump on my right nipple, its right by my piercing, but it doesnt hurt. Im really scared its a bad thing. Is it normal?

What should I do?

Answer

Hi there,

I just wanted to add that one of my breast friends developed a lump near her nipple piercing a number of years ago. It turned out to be a cyst caused by scar tissue. She eventually had it removed (it was pretty big) but apparently this happens a lot. Do see your doctor, but try not to worry, OK?
