A slightly split nipple is not A PROBLEM AS THE NIPPLE CONTAINS MULTIPLE SMALL small openings from different glands. Sometimes due to these openings only the nipple seems to be split but on looking at it carefully you can see that it is just a fold of skin.

I am a 71 year old female. Recently my left nipple has inverted-about 4 times. My primary care physician does not seem too concerned, and my mammogram 6 months ago was normal. I have a history of breast cancer in my family. Mother and younger sister. Should I be concerned, and if so, what should my next step be? Thank you YYYY@YYYY
Hello i am from ohio and i came to cali for a week and noticed just my nipples are pretty sensative when touched. Im very fit and keepy my body pretty hidrated so i frequently have to pee but that might be a concern. I did have my period this month and it seemed pretty normal laated about 4 days first 2 were prwtty heavy last two little to no blood. Could it be the elivation of the air change?
i have a pea size bead like lump on my nipple i noticed it when i was pregnant and my doctor said it was most likely a duct. I never paid much attention to it since my daughter is now 17 months old and i felt it again in the same spot and its hard and i can actually grab it with my pointer finger and thumb. It feels like a hare pea. should i be concerned?
