White pimple-type spot on nipple
My sister was doing her usual self breast exam and noticed a white pimple type spot in the center of her nipple on her right breast. It basically looked like a little milk blister. Is this a sign of cancer possibly and if not, will it clear up on it`s own? She is really scared.
I'm not sure what a "milk blister" is- do you mean the blisters that women get while breastfeeding? Any new findings on the skin of the breast, areola, or nipple should be evaluated by a healthcare provider.
