Inverted Nipple Sign of Cancer?

Inverted nipple with changes may indicate breast cancer
A newly inverted nipple can be a sign of breast cancer....
YES, a newly inverted nipple CAN be a sign of breast cancer. I'm glad you're having it checked. It may turn out to be nothing, but you should not ignore any new finding in your breasts, whether it's an inverted nipple, a lump, skin changes, size change unrelated to weight change or pregnancy, or nipple discharge. CONTINUE YOUR WORKUP and turn to your physician with questions like this, not the internet :)
