Yellow-brown crust in middle of nipples. Lump in armpit. Should I be worried?

OK on my niples in middle there is a yellow brown crust inside can t pick it off it seems to be a part of niple. Sometimes prices break off when a lot is on there, is it normal for a niple to do this and should I be worried? Also under my right armpit I have a pea size lump could this be associated with the niple problem?

thanks for posting your query.
A crust in the nipple indicates some oozing, which is a sign of some inflammatory disease. In young age it could be due to some eczematous changes and in old age it could indicate paget's disease of nipple.
You have also noticed a swelling in the arm pit which could be a lymph node.
All these signs indicate that you must be thoroughly examined by a consultant and get treated properly.
