My Right Nipple Has Changed Color To Darker Than My Left One. It Is Sensitive, Not Painful.

Answer

Hi Debbie: This doesn't sound like a breast cancer symptom; it may be hormonal, and may gradually disappear over the course of your menstrual cycle. If it seems to get worse, e.g., your breast seems infected; hot, red, swollen, or itchy, please see a doctor. You might have an infection. A very rare form of breast cancer, inflammatory breast cancer, somethimes seems like an infection, too, so just watch for changes, and if anything worsens, see a doctor. Good luck - PJH
