Hi,thanks for query.The breast has got a tail which is going towards axilla.In case of infection or more pressure on breast this can happen.the pain is because of swelling.You can apply some analgesic over it and can take analgesic tablet also.In case of more pain and fever you need to see your doctor.bye.

I am 53 yrs old black male. For the past couple of weeks I ve notice that my left nipple is very sensitive to the touch. Not so much when I m wearing a shirt, but if I touch it to check. Also, it feels little hard under and around it to me. What do you think it could be and should I go to the doctor? I have not had any injury to my chest that could have caused this.
