I Have Soreness In One Nipple, The Breast Is Not Tender At All, I Have Been Experiencing It For A Few Days And Am Wondering If I Should Be Concerned Since It Is Just One?

There is no redness or swelling, just pain. Pretty constant just more severe sometimes than others

Answer

Ann, anytime you have a problem in just one breast, you should be concerned enough to check with a doctor if it doesn't go away in a reasonable time. As PJ points out, there are so many possible causes for a sore nipple that you don't need to worry. Just take action if you don't see an improvement.
