Question: Inverted nipple question.....


 jypsy_rose_lee - Mon Mar 08, 2010 12:03 pm

I know that considering how many woman are suffering from breast cancer, that this shouldn't be an issue in my life. I'm just wondering if a pericing of my nipple would keep it from being inverted? Also, what would the cost of having it surgically repaired be? Thank you!

User avatar Hi,
Nipple piercing is no insurance against nipple inversion.On the other hand,nipple piercing may predispose an individual to 'mammary duct ectasia' or 'periductal mastitis' and may lead to nipple inversion!
Good luck!
