embarassing problem (female area) Watch

    hi.
    this is quite an embarassing problem, but I'm beginnin to worry about it...
    around my nipple area a cut has appeared where dicharge/blood comes from, before this there was alot of dry skin around the area which i thought was due to weather change, and applied johnson baby lotion religiously lol, but no change. i thought it maybe dead skin, and exfoliated properly in the shower, still no difference.
    but now, theyre itchy,sore and tender
    the nipple has become inverted, and soft and easily pushes in when pressures applied, instead of being perky.
    i did some research, and got abit worried when i saw cancer, because my grandma passed away from it, but there arent any lumps. i dont have any of the typical causes like pregnancy, or breast feeding or fondling or anything like that. i have started taking pills but theyre for low iron levels, and hair and beauty ones lol, not birth control pills or anything like that (a cause according to research)
    id find it really embarassing to go to the doctor, or gp but i will do if worst comes to worst and no-one can offer advice,even though i know is most unlikely to find a professional here
    thanks

    I know it seems really scary but doctors see boobs all the time. please go for your own sake! i don't want to scare you at all but it really is the sooner the better with this type of thing and you'll get peace of mind once you find out what's really wrong. i have heard of an inflammatory type of breast cancer but it is RARE! breast feeding, fondling and pregnancy are not causes of breast cancer.

    keep anon please.

    Please go to the doctor. I know it seems daunting, but I bet my bottom dollar that if you go to see your GP at 12.00, already that morning he/she will have seen at least two faulty penis' and perhaps a less-than-health vagina. Nothing on your breasts are going to shock them, and I promise you they will do all they can to put you at ease. But please do go and see them

    Never ever try and diagnose yourself over the internet; you WILL convince yourself that you're terminal. Just go to a doctor; they've seen very gruesome things in much worse areas.

    Haha, possibly die or go to see a doctor? I can see why you are having a hard time deciding.

    Dont worry, i had it all last year! I went to the doctor and she told me it was excma ( excuse my awful spelling). Your symtoms sound exactly the same as mine. My doctor gave me some cream and it cleared up fairly fast, now i never get any discharge or anything! Good luck!

    Honestly don't be embarassed. Doctors have seen everything before.

    Also, please don't stress yourself over cancer

    My first post on this forum was when I found a breast lump before one of my A-level exams and I was absolutely destraught. I went through hell for 3months getting tested, biopsied and seeing consultants about the lump. After a lot of stress and worry I went back to my consultant who told me I have a fibrodema (which is just a fibrous tumour).

    I also had an inverted nipple which terrified me as I too googled "inverted nipples" :rolleyes:

    Trust me, for your own sake, ignore all scary stories and symptom checkers online. Go see a doctor who will refer you to a specialist to take care of it.
    This could easily be a simple infection or allergic reaction.

    Do not assume the worst and don't stress it

    Nipples aren't really a 'female area'. You know we got them too, yeah?

    I don't know why I click on threads with titles like these, I really don't :') Some kind of morbid curiosity I suppose.

    In all seriousness though, please do go and see your doctor. Don't be embarrassed, you can sometimes request a female one. It sounds like only that will be able to put your mind at rest.

    Must not laugh, must not laugh.

    OP I am sure you are fine, but just on the safe side check it out. Your dr will see so many body parts that it is nothing to them. When you are there it is so normal that you will not even think of it like it sounds now.

    Doctors see nipples all the time! Seeing a doc can put your mind at rest and hopefully get you a better treatment for the problem, like a cream specifically for this.

    Hey

    Sounds like eczema. Go and see your GP. She's probably going to give you some cream. My cousin had it when she was 16 or so. You have to treat it somehow or its going to get worse
    Don't worry, many people have eczema

    Good Luck
