Hello Anonymous,

According to Dr. Devi Nampiaparampil of Mount Sinai Medical Center, " Nipple pain can be normal. As the levels of estrogen and progesterone in the body change (during a woman's cycle)nipple sensitivity can also change. Nipple pain can also be mechanical- from friction with certain fabrics, for example."

If you feel a firm mass, see any redness, discharge or bleeding, or if you have a fever or chills, contact your healthcare provider.
