Hi, I just turned 21 (female) and I have a pretty bad soreness and redness in my right nipple. The soreness started a day or two ago, and my grandmother on my dads side has had breast cancer so that makes me a little nervous. The nipple is hard and red around the top of the areola. I really don't have the money for a doctor bill right now and am hoping someone can help me narrow down what it could be. I was thinking it could be an infection but there is no discharge and no skin breakage. I do go running on ocassion so would it be possible for it to just be irritation?
