Depends: Many women naturally have inverted nipples. It depends on whether its a new finding or has always been that way. If it's always been that way, it's nothing to worry about. If it's a new thing, it needs very careful evaluation.

Variety of issues: Women with larger breasts often times have visible large visible veins. This may or may not be the cause of your breast pain. However, at age 19 it is unlikely anything serious. They probably sent you to breast clinic to see if this is fibrocystic breast changes or mastodynia (breast pain).

4 months of stabbing pain through left breast starting at nipple straight through to back. No lumps but have history of fibrocystic breasts.

4 months of stabbing pain through left breast starting at nipple straight through to back. No lumps but have history of fibrocystic breasts.

Ribs: This is most likely an intercostal neuralgia, or irritation of the nerve associated with each rib. The pain is sharp, and stabbing, often radiating from breast area to the back. Gastroesphageal reflux, particularly with hiatal hernia may cause similar symptoms. Diagnostic workup may include thoracic ct / MRI to exclude aneurysm.

Hard to say.: You are young and physically active so many may say "nothing to worry about". However, with the presence of nausea and radiating pain, you should be further evaluated to rule out possible pancreatitis or gallbladder issue. Your family history is very important. See your PCP.

Positional: The positional nature of your pain makes me wonder about your spine - as you lean, you flex and extend it which open and close your neural foramina (the canals where the nerve roots exit). Arthritic spurs often encroach on these canals and can cause nerve root irritation. Arthritis in the facet joints of the spine can further cause positional pain.

More muscle contr.-s: Because of cooler temperatures during winter you may have more smooth muscle spasms during the cooler months and this can lead to tenderness! Keep your breasts warm!!

11 days late for period. Really really sore breasts. Bad shooting pain in left breast. Above nipple. Pregnant? First test was negative. Took 2 days ago

Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, vaginal spotting, or medications. A test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a negative result may be due to testing too early such as less than 2 weeks after conception.

Fibrocystic: This is most likely fibrocystic changes, which are simply swollen glands that respond to hormonal changes. They tend to come and go. Reducing caffeine may help.

There's a small dry brown patch 2cm under my nipple and sometimes I get pains in my left breast. The other breast is just normal, what do I do?

See Doctor: It's recommended women over 40 have mammography done. Usually, following an exam, and mammography, if problem persists, see specialist to rule out cancer. Good Luck

Common: Breast asymmetry and changes in nipples are common with women particularly around their cycle at your age. It's also common in breast-feeding. Of course I do not know if this is true for you. Hormonal changes around the cycle are largely responsible. Commonly they will affect both breasts similarly. But occasionally asymmetrically as described. Fever, significant pain or masses-see your doctor.

Left breast nipple is inverted should I get it checked?

Left breast nipple is inverted should I get it checked?

Yes: If this is a new finding, it may be significant. Any change in the skin overlying the breast, for example, dimpling, nipple inversion, orange peel appearance, can be a sign of serious underling breast disease. Please see your doctor.

What to do if I have an inverted nipple on my left breast, which is the best way to correct it?

Cosmetic: Some people have inverted nipples and some people have everted nipples, but neither will affect the functionality of the nipple for breastfeeding. If you are worried about the appearance of the nipple, then I would consult a cosmetic surgeon
