Itching on the nipples and breast. Should I be worried about cancer? On mirena

My nipples itch and my breast most of the time except for when my period actually comes on and as soon as my period is over they start to hurt and itch again until it comes back on again. it doesn't bother me too much becuse the sensativitymakes foreplay better. is this something i should be worried about? could it cause more problems down the line? like cancer? I had the mirena for about a year now and besides that no real bad side affects just light period and i don't mind that

Thanks for the query.

The possible cause for your problem are:
-Hormonal effect
-Side effect of mirena
-Yeast infections due to humidity sometimes can lead to itching.

So if the symptoms continue, once consult gynecologist and get examined.
If she recommends you can go for mammogram.
Tablets containing eveningprimerose oil can help in revealing breast symptoms due to hormonal effect.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
