Okay, first, the usual disclaimers: the person involved is seeing a doctor soon, has rummaged around online, just wants some reassurance.
My sister called last night to tell me that one of her nipples has suddenly inverted. This is not the normal state of affairs for her. She did some looking online and cancer was almost always mentioned as a cause. The thing is, she just had a mammogram and a biopsy on that breast a few months ago, and they found nothing. She did develop a huge hematoma as a result of the biopsy that took a long time to subside. I found one reference to inversion being caused by the development of scar tissue, and I’m wondering if the biopsy could have caused scarring that has lead to this?
Has anyone had any experience with this, and how can it be corrected? Are there other benign causes for a sudden onset like this? Might it go away? Could a cancer develop quickly enough to cause this without being detected by either the mammo or the biopsy?
