Customer Question

Recently I have noticed a couple pinhead sized brown spots on the aerola of my left nipple. Should I be concerned. My husband passed away 3 months ago and I have had a great amount of stress. Wondering if that has caused it. No soreness or pain or drainage of any kind.

I am sorry about the passing of your husband.

I am a cancer doctor

a couple of pinhead brown spots on your areola are not signs of cancer of the breast or nipple.

I am not worried about that as a sign of breast cancer.
