Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
No: Cancer results from things that alter the chemistry of the nucleic acids in the epithelial cells and/or causes the cells to proliferate; fondling can no more produce this than it can give a woman a sunburn.

No: No.Get a more detailed answer ›
Inverted nipple or nipples may be long standing or of sudden onset. Those of sudden onset would be more worrying, especially if on one side. There are many benign causes of nipple inversion (see http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/inverted_nipple).
However, breast cancer can cause distortion of the breast tissue and lead to nipple inversion. Inversion, especially unilateral, should be checked by doc. ...Read more

No: Breast tissue is susceptible to injury as any tissue in the body is if there is sufficient trauma. This can manifest with similar symptoms to breast cancer on occasion (lumps, pain, bruising, etc). However, pressing on the breast and nipple-sucking (even if traumatic) does not cause breast cancer. ...Read more
If my nipples sometimes get crusty or flaky is this a sign or symptom of breast cancer? What should I do?

Pain in both breasts, especially right breast and new bumps on nipple how likely is this to be cancer and what else could it be?

Hey, so my boyfriend is gonna give me a hickey on top of my breast not near the nipple or anything if he does will it cost cancer or anything and how long till it goes away?
A bruise: A hickey is a bruise. Biting or sucking the skin breaks tiny blood vessels and makes them bleed which causes a bruise. It won't cause cancer but it will take at least a week, if not longer, to heal up and disappear. And don't believe anyone who tells you toothpaste will make it heal faster! ...Read more
Possibly: Most patients with breast cancer will have either no symptoms or a lump in the breast. The cancer can cause some architectural distortion of the breast, though, which can cause some changes in the nipple like nipple inversion, retraction, or otherwise alter the appearance of the nipple. This is not the most typical presentation, but it can happen. ...Read more
See breast doctor.: Dimpling of the skin and/or nipple inversion are both breast changes that can be associated with breast cancer, therefore, I recommend that you see your primary care doctor for a referral to a breast specialist. Depending on your age and examination findings, they may want to get a mammogram +/- ultrasound. Of course, there are many false alarms, but it's better to prove that it's not a cancer. ...Read more
Removed or spared: Occasionally, the nipple and skin can be spared with a mastectomy, depending on the size of the breast, the size of the tumor, and how close the tumor is to the nipple. If there is tumor in close proximity to the nipple, the nipple and areola are removed with the breast tissue, and a new nipple and areola can be reconstructed later. ...Read more
Is the change in direction of a nipple when its starting getting erected a sign of breast cancer?
Not likely: But breast or nipple changes should be examined by a doctor to be sure. Breast cancer may present as a firm lump or less commonly nipple inversion, and early breast cancer will have little or no findings. You cannot be sure until you see a doctor for a physical examination & possibly a mammogram. ...Read more

When I press my right Brest just below the nipple I feel some pain and the pain started yesterday. Could it be breast cancer.
No cancer: cancer for the most part, when related to breast, starts in the ductal system and progresses to invade breast tissue with the appearance of a mass but no pain. This is followed by skin dimpling and again no pain. The latter is mostly induced by dilated milk ducts secondary to fibrocystic mastopathy. Have mammo to confirm. ...Read more
I have a slight dent in my both breast right above the nipple sometimes. I notice it when removing my bra. Could this be a sign of cancer? Help docs:-
Probably not.: Most of the time this is dermatologic. There is a type of breast cancer known as paget's disease of the nipple that can present as an excoriated lesion on the nipple or areola.
