First, this doesn't look like breast cancer. If you mean that your nipples are enlarged and 'puffy', then there is usually nothing you can do about it. If you are overweight then start by losing weight that may help. Usually its a constitutional thing (meaning its normal for some people) and nothing can be done about it. If your nipples are tender or you feel something hard beneath your nipples then you should seek medical attention.
