Answer

Hi Jeslynn - This could be an infected milk duct, or even plugged sebaceous (fat) glands. Whatever it is, cancer is probably last on the list of probable causes. Since this is a breast change, though, it needs to be checked out - so please see your doctor about it, OK? And in the meantime, read our post on nipple issues. Please don't over- stress, really; just make the appointment and get things rolling. Action trumps anxiety. Good luck - PJH
