In brief: 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.
