Inverted nipple and breast cancer
You may find a newly inverted nipple is worrisome, but keep in mind that not all inverted nipples mean you have breast cancer, there are broad differentials to refracted nipples.
Other symptoms of breast cancer may include a lump or thickening in your breast, color-changing of breast skin, oozing nipples, and scaling.
The cause of inverted nipples in breast cancer is the cancerous lesions destroy the breast tissues especially the duct behind the nipples.
Inform your physician about any change you notice in your nipples or breast, family history, and complete physical examination is needed to evaluate your condition, further investigations may include breast ultrasound, mammogram, fine needle aspiration, and biopsy.
The most common breast cancer that affects nipples is Paget’s disease of the nipples and duct carcinoma.
Early detection of breast cancer and starting treatment promptly obtain better outcomes in the long term.
