Asked by Debbie Hannold

My Nipples Are Very Tender. It Hurts When They Rub On My Bra & Are Very Painful To The Touch.

I am 44 years old and have 2 children. This has been going on, off and on, for months now and is extremely uncomfortable. Should I be concerned?

Answer

Debbie, if the pain and tenderness in your nipples comes and goes regularly, following the cycle of your period, it's probably nothing to be concerned about, cancer-wise (even though it hurts like the dickens!); it's probably a hormonal issue. If it's more random, or becomes persistent, why not call the doctor and find out what it is? No use suffering (emotionally or physically) if you don't have to! Good luck - PJH
