Hi, Thanks for writing in. There is a possibility that this could be benign condition like a cyst or mastitis. However the possibility of adenoma and cancer also cannot be ruled out. Is there any accompanying discharge from the nipple? Please schedule an appointment with your doctor and get yourself clinically examined. Let us know if you need more information!
