I don't think this is cancerous, I've recently had a pap smear (breast exam included) and I checked out fine, but I have these smalls bumps that are on both nipples, just a few though. Sometimes they're hardened and are above the nipple surface and other times they're smoothed out when my nipple isn't hard. I have a feeling this is normal, but I just want to check. I've included a picture to better help my explanation.

Yea..I noticed that i have some bumps on my nipple, and I got concerned. I think that they are just glands that help during breast feeding and usually come during puberty. I scratched at them and it hurt like heck because I thought they were some kind of nasty pimples(ewww!) or something, but i was wrong. :'( OUCH!!!!

They are Montgomery glands.
They are there to lubricate and protect your nipples & confirm that you are more likely to breastfeed after having a child.
They are not from an STD, do NOT indicate pregnancy and are not pimples.
Do NOT try to pop them, you'll agitate the gland most likely get an intense infection.

Completely normal. the post about "Montgomery glands" is spot on. About a third of women have pronounced MGs, others don't have them, or they aren't as visible. All good, just difference found in nature!
