my own experience
Last year I found a little pimple-like stuff on my nipple and was really worried. I took some courage to ring up my surgery to make an appointment to see the GP. I asked to see a female GP, telling the receptionist that it was about some unusual growth on my nipple and I got to see a female GP!
After the examination, which only took few minutes, the GP told me not to be worry as it was only a skin tag. Thinking back, I was doing some training to run the Cardiff half marathon, so that might be why I got the skin tag. Constant rubbing between the fabric and nipple due to repeated running movement, hence the skin tag.
See, all you need is some courage, a phone call and 20 minutes to get anything unusual on your breast checked. Of course, if it is nothing to be worried about, you could have peace of mind. On the other hand, if it is something that should be addressed, you have done the best you can do by finding out earlier and improving the prognosis. Because, the earlier you find out, the better the chances breast cancer gets treated.
