Normal: There are glands on your areola that look like bumps, that are completely normal. If you have a new lump or mass, however, then definitely see a doctor for an exam and work up. Best wishes.

Yes: In the areola are glands under the skin that form bumps at the surface. These are normal during pregnancy and even when you are not pregnant.
