Is It Normal For The Nipples To Come Inside?
I am a teenager aged 17 years. Why aren’t my nipples coming out? Is this dangerous?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of the nipple that doesn't come out, also called the inverted nipple, and this happens more often than you think.
Putting into the actual is not always a form of abnormality, but rather a variation of the normal condition of the body. Just like curly hair, straight hair, and curly hair, there are people whose nipples go in, which nipples appear as generally, and which arises too much.
Even so, there are several factors that can trigger the emergence of this condition, such as aging, thickening of the milk ducts that often occur near menopause, Paget's disease, inflammation and cancer. But do not worry, because that arises because the disease is usually accompanied by other symptoms that are clearly disturbing, such as lumps, redness, pain, and changes in skin appearance around the nipple. If you don't experience any complaints and only the nipples don't appear, this is usually only a variation and doesn't need to worry.
Furthermore, the nipple that goes into can be divided into three levels, which can return long enough after being pressed with a finger, which returns quickly enough after being pressed with a finger, and which cannot return even if pressed with a finger. For an illustration see the image below.
You can judge which category you fall into by trying to do it yourself at home. The importance is that if you are the last category, where the nipples still cannot appear despite the emphasis, then when you have children later it might be difficult to breastfeed your child, and for that, you should plan to have children or when you are pregnant later. further consult this problem with your obstetrician to be guided regarding treatment. So, hopefully answering your question.
