Hi, I realized the past few days that I feel pain close to my left nipple is it a bad sign? Could it mean something's wrong? I really would like to know about this.

Friction means rubbing, like something (clothing, bra) rubbing against the nipple.

Thank you for your reply. I am seeing a doctor for this and I'm having a breast ultrasound done soon and I'm going to see my doctor for it regarding results and checkup. I know I mentioned about breast conditio in the past but one thing I realized the past few days is that why I'm feeling pain close to my nipple? I have to wait and see how things go with the testings I'm having. Since you mentioned being friction or injury I do know it's not from injury and I don't know what is friction mean?

Thanks for your opinion,

Hello Melissa,

I know that you have had concerns about breast conditions in the past. The pain which you are having may simply be the result of friction or injury over the nipple area. It may be triggered by premenstrual hormone changes.

If I recall, you have mentioned in previous posts that you have been treated by a breast surgeon. If the pain persists or worsens, give your doctor a call. The breast surgeon may want you to come into the office for a physical examination.
