Really scared about breast cancer
« on: July 09, 2014, 11:23:24 AM »
A few months ago (maybe 6) I was having this problem where my nipple was getting hard randomly and kind of tingly. That went away, but today I was trying on a bathing suit in a store and my nipples (not areolas, just the nipples) were red and kind of purple and looked weird. I'm freaking out that I have Paget's disease or another kind of breast cancer. I'm on vacation and I'm so scared..

What you're describing sounds completely normal to me. All of it -- the random hardness, slightly tingly, color changes -- are probably due to hormones. I've had all of these things happen throughout the years & my breasts have been healthy. Have you recently changed birth control? Because maybe that could be a factor, too. If you're doing self exams & having a yearly OBGYN exam, I'm sure you're ok. Honestly, I think you're fine! Enjoy your vacation!!!
