Breast Milk and Nipple Discharge
When you are expecting a baby, your breasts enlarge and after the delivery they will start to produce milk. Your baby will be able to suck milk from your breasts 2 hours after the delivery. However, there are other liquids than milk that can come out of your breasts, but most of them are not dangerous and that problem can easily be solved with the help of a doctor. Still, some of these breast discharges can indicate a breast cancer, so it is necessary to visit a doctor.
As we live in the world where certain things like piercing, for example, are considered modern, we have to say something more about nipple piercing. When you decide to pierce your nipple, you have to be aware that there is a danger of a possible infection and this rule stands for piercing any part of your body. However, nipple piercing doesn’t increase the chances for the development of breast cancer.
Some women feel pain wile nursing a baby, but that pain can be relieved. Also, some women who are not breastfeeding may experience pain underneath the nipples, but if this happens, then visit to a doctor is highly advised. Nipples can itch but if everything is normal, the itching will stop over time. Sometimes, when the itching lasts longer and other changes on the nipple are noticed, it can be the sign of a certain type of cancer.You should know that, when reconstructing your breasts, you will need new nipples. New nipples are created surgically, but there is also a nipple prosthesis, which can be easily placed or removed.
