HEALTHLINE reports on NIPPLE PROBLEMS, CAUSES, DIAGNOSIS, and TREATMENT:
Nipple problems are caused by illnesses starting in your body or irritants in your environment.
Many nipple problems are NOT related to breast cancer, but they could indicate a serious underlying condition. Always see a doctor if you have nipple discharge. Nipple problems, including those involving the milk ducts, can develop in men as well as women.
What MEDICAL CONDITIONS could cause NIPPLE PROBLEMS?
What ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS could cause NIPPLE PROBLEMS?
Your nipples can become irritated, sore, or even cracked due to friction. Running and sexual activity are sometimes causes of temporary nipple problems due to vigorous rubbing.
There are also medicines prescribed for unrelated conditions that can cause breast swelling and nipple discharge. Certain birth control pills can also cause nipple problems, including discharge.
A severe blow to your breast or unusual pressure on the chest can also cause nipple discharge.
How do doctors diagnose NIPPLE PROBLEMS?
YOU will know right away if you have a NIPPLE PROBLEM.
You might see discharge, such as pus or a white, watery fluid. You may also feel pain, itchiness, or swelling in your nipples. See your doctor right away if you have any discharge at all or discomfort that lasts for more than a few days.
You may also notice changes in the shape of your nipple(s) or in the areola (the skin around your nipple), such as puckering or dimpling of the skin. Monthly discomfort that lasts just a few days could be related to hormone fluctuations during your menstrual cycle. Don't hesitate to discuss any changes concerning your breasts, areolas, or nipples with your doctor.
Your doctor will examine your nipple and areola. He or she will ask you about medicines you are taking, any changes in your diet, whether you might be pregnant, and any recent exercise or activity that could have irritated your nipples.
If your problem involves discharge, your doctor may perform a test to find out how many of the ducts that bring fluid to your nipples are involved.
Your doctor may want you to have a mammogram. A mammogram is an imaging test that
If your doctor thinks you may have Paget’s disease—a rare breast cancer—he or she may order a skin biopsy.
Other tests you might receive include:
- prolactin level blood test
- thyroid hormone test
- CT scan
- MRI scan
The TREATMENT will depend on the specific cause(s) of your NIPPLE PROBLEM.
InfectionsInfections of the nipple will be treated with the appropriate medicine. For example, a bacterial infection will require antibiotics. If you have a fungal infection, such as candidiasas, your doctor will prescribe an antifungal. These medicines may be taken by mouth or applied to your skin.

Pituitary tumorAlso known as prolactinoma, a pituitary tumor is usually benign and might not require treatment at all. Because of its location in your head, these tumors can press on the nerves that lead to your eyes, causing vision problems if they grow too large. In that case, surgery is required to remove them.
Pituitary tumors can also be treated with two medicines, bromocriptine and cabergoline, which reduce the amount of prolactin in your system. If the tumor does not
