Can changes in nipple appearance occur without being pregnant? 19 years old never had sex  with only situation where pregnancy is rare & unlikely

Yes: Nipples on a person will look a little different each year as the person ages. Think of a person's nipples at age 5, 10, 15, 20, 40, 60, and 80 years...

Gynecomastia: I think you are describing growth of breast tissue but you are male, a condition called 'gynecomastia'.

See your Pediatrician for more advice ...Read more
