In brief: Yes
Crusting and eczema in your nipple could be a sign of inflammation, dermatitis, the most important consideration is that you should see your primary doctor or a general surgeon immediately for a possible breasts mammogram and biopsy to rule out cancer or malignancy of the breast.

In brief: Yes
Skin changes around the nipple are abnormal.
You should go to your doctor promptly and get it examined. In some cases this finding is associated with paget's disease of the breast. This is actually a cancer and needs to be treated. Learn more: http://www.Webmd.Com/breast-cancer/pagets-nipple-disease.

In brief: Yes
Skin changes that occur on one breast but not on the other are more likely to indicate a problem. Pain around the nipple, scaling canindicate padget's ds--type of cancer.
But an itchy flaky rash on a present can also indicate an early cancer. Sometimes any nipple must be completely evaluated by a competent breast surgeon by microscope exam.
