Hello,

Nipple tenderness at your age is not to be worried about. This tenderness is part of puberty process and can be seen either of the nipples or both of them. It should go off within one or two years. Nothing to worry. If you have further doubts, I suggest consulting a physician for physical examination, diagnosis and treatment.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
