Pink/redness: Slight pink/redness around part of your areola would not normally be a risk factor for breast cancer. If the rash/discoloration persists, be sure to see the Doc and get a clinical exam and evaluation of your breast to be safe, so you can get an official diagnosis and the best treatment will follow, best wishes.
