I am sorry your daughter has this pain.
Did she injure that area at all recently? Does she play sports? What do you see there - any skin changes, bruising, redness? Is the area tender or painful?Does your daughter have any chronic medical issues?Thanks,
She does not have any chronic medical issues. She is active but tells me this has been bothering her for a month (quized her on long a month -- she knows what a month is). Her areolar looks slightly darker--not really larger than her other breast; however, the whole breast seems a bit swollen (the involved breast is the left). I have examined underneath the breast - no lumps. I still need to check out the other lymph nodes...
There is no brusing, no redness, no discharge, no recent fever. The area underneath the nipple is painful.
I have read a child cannot have a nipple retraction so this leaves an inversion--not so good.
