Re: Bumps on and around nipple?

It is quite possible that the bumps around your nipples that you are describing are mammary glands, which naturally appear on the areola which is the circular pigmented area that surrounds the actual nipple and look like small pimple-like bumps. The purpose of these glands is to help women deliver milk to babies when they are breastfeeding. In addition, the nipple is surrounded by hair follicles, and hair can be found around the outside of the areola. The amount of actual hair varies from woman to woman, usually begins to grow around puberty, and increases as you grow. This is a completely normal occurrence and is not a medical problem.

However, it is probably a good idea to get checked out by your doctor just to make sure everything is ok.

Re: Bumps on and around nipple?

Those are Montgomery's glands. Perfectly normal, everyone has them. When you are pregnant and nursing, they excrete an oily substance to help moisturize and protect the nipple. Not a worry.

Re: Bumps on and around nipple?

I get bumps on my nipples sometimes too...I don't know what they are but they usually go away. I'm not very old so I don't really know what's going on?
