Your complaint is not necessarily due to breast cancer. There are several conditions that can cause swollen, hard, and painful nipples as you experience, some of which are:
Infection and inflammation in the skin of the nipples, such as acne, boils, and folliculitis Irritation of the nipples, for example due to soap or clothing fibers History of muscle injury or previous impact Consumption of certain drugs Breast cancer in men Breast fat necrosis To determine the cause of your complaint naturally, it is difficult if there is no direct examination. Therefore I suggest that you check with your doctor first so that you can do further tests to find out the cause. Then the doctor can provide the right treatment for you. The treatment given will be adjusted to your condition.
Meanwhile you can do the following tips:
Do not squeeze the nipples or the swollen parts. Warm express on the nipples. Consume pain relievers if necessary. Use hypoallergenic soaps and detergents. Warm up, stretch, and cool properly when exercising or weight training. The following articles relate to your question topic:
