The causes of the condition of inverted nipples
Women and men are born with the condition of inverted nipples. This is caused by an abnormal structure of the nipple, the underlying tissue, or surrounding skin. Other people develop the condition due to changes in the area over time. This can happen when milk ducts and other fibrous nipple tissues lose length due to inflammation. Also, scar tissue can form after a breast biopsy when tissue is extracted near the nipple, resulting in a permanent blockage.
Extreme changes in breast size and in the amount of drooping can make nipples appear to be inverted. Yet most women who breastfeed report that their nipples become more pronounced, some experience nipple retraction. There have been rare instances were inverted nipples have indicated breast cancer. If you were not born with inverted nipples and develop the condition for no apparent reason, or wish to address your born condition, schedule an exam with Dr. Azharian to assess the situation.
