Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

This appears to be a simple calcium deposit. You should just monitor it. If it is not enlarging, or becoming red, or if there is no nipple discharge or pain there is no need to worry about this. I expect that this to be self-limiting and will resolve on its own in another week or two. If any concerning features develop such as redness or if it enlarging then you should consult your doctor.

Take care.
