An inverted nipple can also be the sign of inflammatory breast cancer, which is hard to detect. Most of its other symptoms, such as red and inflamed breasts, may be presumed to be normal. Lumps in affected breasts may be hard to notice, and a mammogram may not even detect the problem. This can be bad news as the breast cancer progresses silently into deadlier stages.
The discovery of a breast cancer inverted nipple can be devastating to the victim. What's worse, many women with an inverted nipple or nipples don't sense trouble since their problem is not a common sign of breast cancer. The good news is that women can avail information that helps explain what to do once they develop an inverted nipple. Still, early diagnosis can help minimize the impact of breast cancer on a patient.
Please seek medical advice as soon as you notice any changes in your breast, and if your first advice is to forget about it, please don’t, seek another advice till it’s tested for certain.
