I've been noticing that my nipples have been inverted for maybe a week now. For the first time I did a BSE for the first time in my life, and not sure I did it right, even though I looked up the instructions on the internet. It felt weird. Then my nipples change...they are inverted at one point and then poke out, and then they invert. My nipples also sometimes get dark pink. I haven't had my cycle since the end of October. I sometimes have irregular periods. Why is it a concern to get your breasts checked out for any changes such as having the nipples inverted? I'm kinda nervous about this, but I don't really see my nipples being inverted as a real concern, except that I read that it could be a sign of breast cancer. My Grandmother had breast cancer. I figured if I f I don't have my cycle in January and/or if my nipples are still inverted I'll schedule an appointment.

Hi, there and Happy New Year. Glad you found this site for your concerns. As for inverted nipples, you are correct that it can be a sign of bc. It is also significant that you gm had breast cancer. You did not mention your age, but why do you not schedule an exam with you ob.gyn and mention your inverted nipples. This could eliminate all this concern. Let us hear from you regarding your decision, and I am also sure others on this forum more knowledgeable than I will respond to your query. \\

Happy New Year !

I see it has been a while since you posted, so I don't know if you are still out there lurking. You might want to check the web site for more information about inverted nipples. Find the American Cancer Society's web site for information on how to do a BSE. Good luck. Lauri
Here is the ACS link on how to do a BSE
