I Have A Pimple Like Thing On My Nipple White Discharge Comes Out With Squeezed. What Could It Be?

I am a young teen. I am worried it could be breat cancer..

Answer

Your chance of having breast cancer as a young teen is, statistically, 0%. Not to say it's absolutely impossible; but so low that it doesn't register in the averages. In addition, what you describe isn't a breast cancer symptom. Sounds like you might have a minor infection on your nipple. Skin can get infected anywhere, not just on your face, where you get pimples. If it gets worse, tell your mom and see what she thinks. Keep it clean, dry, and covered; and hopefully it'll heal quickly. If not, do be sure to tell an adult, OK? Good luck - PJH
