Painful Nipple With White Headed Pimple

Two days ago my left nipple started to hurt and i saw a little swollen and red at the lower side. very painful by touching and the next day, while i was showing i saw a white headed so i popped, thick white resection came out and it is less painful. i went to bed the next morning there is still some white secretion left over in a tiny hole. i am very worry now

Answer

this doesn't sound at all like a breast cancer symptom; it sounds like you've had a small infection - a pimple on your areola. I'd suggest applying some antibiotic, keeping it clean and dry, and leaving it alone. If it seems to be getting infected again, best to see a doctor for some advice and treatment. Good luck - PJH
