I've had an inverted nipple my whole life, and I have a slight pain every now and then beneath it. I'm 21 years old. Is this normal for someone who naturally has in inverted nip? I'm embarrassed to tell my mom about this and worried to go to the doctors.

    At your age you can make your own doctor appointments. At your next yearly check up with the gyn he/she should be doing a breast check. If you haven't been doing you female yearly find a gyn and get a breast check.

    Make an appointment with your doctor. This is of concern to YOU. You don't have to tell you mother about this if it embarrasses you. You are an adult and should have this checked. We can't tell you what is wrong and why this is happening. We certainly can't tell you this is all right and nothing to worry about. If I were you, I would see why this is happening. Take care, Sharon

    Don't be embarrassed to talk with your mother about your concerns. You should see a doctor for an exam and make sure it's nothing.

    Does something like this sound like it may be normal though?

      Well it is normal to have an inverted nipple, especially since when I can remember. I was just wondering if the slight pain would be normal
