Any change in the Nipple or breast at any change needs urgent attention.If the nipple is hard,is there any discharge with it??.It would be best to see a general surgeon or a Cancer Surgeon, not because it may be Cancer but it should be looked with suspicion untill proved otherwise.Dont get scared but act.Do keep me informed about your progress.
