In brief: Why Nipple Inversion
If you have always had an inverted nipple then it is usually caused by shotened milk ducts and internal fibrous tissue.
If it is a new finding then see your doctor as it may represent a malignancy. To correc this, i recommend trying a non surgical approach called the nipplette. It is a suction device that works for most women. It can be found on line and you do not need a prescription.

In brief: Depends
If you have always had inverted nipples then it is usually due to short mild ducts.
If this is a recent developement you should have your breasts examined as this can be caused by a mass in your breast. If the cause is not serious, these can be easily corrected. Dr. Fred coville - linwood, nj.

In brief: Many reasons
There may be many reasons for an inverted nipple but these are broadly categorized into congenital or acquired.
Any newly acquired retraction particularly idmpf associated with nipple drainage or bleeding should be urgently evaluated for possible neoplasia. Treatment may compromise the ability to nurse and lactation may help mild cases to resolve so it is best to defer treatment until after childr.
