Small Red Lines On Both Of My Breasts And Sharp Sting On My Left Nipple

I have these thin small red lines on both of my breasts on the sides and rarely like today i got a sharp sting on my left nipple. Im skared, does this mean anything? Im only 17. Please help :(

Answer

First, let me reassure you that a problem on both breasts is rarely breast cancer for a woman at any age, and teens almost never have breast cancer. The stinging that comes and goes is also not a worrisome symptom. If you think about it, you probably also have twinges of pain from time to time in other parts of your body too. I don't know whether you need to see a doctor about the red lines. You might have a rash that would respond well to a prescription cream or lotion. I'd suggest showing the red lines to your mother, the school nurse, or another adult to find out whether you need to call the doctor right away or whether this can wait until your next check-up.
