I have bumps on my nipples. Are they harmless?


I have been noticing on my chest that my nipples have bumps a bit bigger than goose bumps but they never go away. One is as big as a pinhead. I'm really worried it could be a disease or even cancer! What should I do?

OK, girlie, calm down. You’re gonna be just fine. Those bumps are perfectly normal—they even have a name! They are sebaceous glands called Montgomery Glands. They secrete an oily liquid that keeps your areola and nipple lubricated and protected from rough material that might irritate the otherwise sensitive skin.

When your nipple is stimulated (or it’s particularly cold outside…), you might notice that the bumps become a bit more noticeable. Again, totally normal, so no worries, sweetie!
