Any discharge from the nipple? Any lumps felt in the breast? Colour change of the Nicole can happen due to hormonal changes.

If the self examination of the breast is normal along with normal periods then there is nothing to worry.

Hi there,No discharge, every period I always get very painful breasts and nipples. No lumps, however, I have always had some white dots of my nipple which is normal but one of the white dots looks inflamed and is standing out ever so slightly but I can’t feel any lumps

Don't think there is anything to worry.  Any family history of breast cancer in family?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No nothing which is good and I am only 22. Not sure if it’s a blocked pore maybe?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Did you want me to show you a picture of it?

Sounds like there is nothing to worry about.

How would I know if there is something to worry about?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
There is like slight raise in my skin but no lump or anything

Usually any bloody discharge is worrisome,  any family history of breast cancer is worrisome. Also self exam is normal. The bresst responds to the menstrual harmones ( estrogen and progesterone) and that is the reason for the breast changes.
