Question:

my daughter about a year ago had a sore bump on her left nipple area which has for about 4 years had a white small bump on it which is not sore. now the other nipple area has became sore and has a bump on it. is this something to be worried about or is it that they are just trying to grow

Answer:

These bumps are unlikely to be anything worrisome, but should probably be evaluated by her pediatrician.
