Unhappy (teen) Dark rash around areola and risen Montgomery glands?

My left nipple is also softer and not as hard as the other nipple. I notice the rash two weeks ago but I ignored the it for a bit but it has gotten worse which is why I am writing this.

I'm only a teen and I've read that Paget's disease of the breast is uncommon in under 50s. Most websites also said that the rash starts on the nipple but I don't really know what my nipple looked like before. Both of my nipple aren't the same shape.

I've been getting quite worried about this and even got really upset about it before .__. What else could this be? Is it serious?

Thank you

Re: (15 years old) Dark rash around areola and risen Montgomery glands?

Hi there Crystal,

So sorry to hear of your concerns...I hope I can offer you a bit of relief. Of course, I am not a doctor, and have never had any experience with the issue you are speaking of, but I am a mother, and a woman who wants to help you.

First of all, I would encourage you not to let your thoughts jump ahead to any sort of illness or malady, particularly one that is more typical to women in their 50's.

Is this something you can talk to your mother about? She would be the first one who would want to get you the care you need. This is something you will need to have a doctor look at. Doctors are very careful to make you feel comfortable and make the whole thing as quick and easy as possible. There is nothing to be afraid of, or shy about. These things happen, and as women, it is our job to protect and care for our bodies. Waiting any longer only makes you feel more stressed and can make treating it more difficult. I hope you are able to have this conversation today.

With you being as young as you are, and your symptoms appearing as they have, I would imagine the doctor can offer you some very good information on what it going on, and how to fix it. You will feel so much better once you know what you are dealing with.

Please write me back and tell me what you think...

Janet
