White painless spot on the nipple
I have a white PAINLESS spot on my right nipple for the last 2-3 weeks. Its like a milk blister but painless n with no discharge. I have been wondering how can i have a milk blister when i dun ve kids? (milk ducts form after pregnancy?) Im 21 btw.
I can't tell you for certain, but this may be a small sebaceous cyst of the skin of your nipple. This is a benign (not cancer) mass that can grow in skin and will sometimes have a white "head" on them. They can get infected but don't become cancer.
