Customer Question
Hello again I'm sorry for...
Hello again I'm sorry for this but I'm v worried and when I was lying down I pulled one nipple up high and when it came down it looked like it went inverted and back into my breast - retracted. It caused a deep crease. Is this nipple retraction caused
by breast cancer? It doesn't retract when I stand up but I've never seen it before. Please help. Thank-you - why is it creasing like this when I do this

no, this is not caused by breast cancer
it is caused by you pulling up your nipple
you need to stop pulling on your nipple
you are causing this crease when you pull and press and squeeze your nipple
you don't have breast cancer
you have bad anxiety symptoms and worry about breast cancer
you need more therapy for your anxiety symptoms.
