my girlfriends nipples taste like onions. even if she just came out of the shower. she does have onions in her diet. but im not convinced that if she cuts out onions from her diet that it will solve it

Do not forget that whatever you eat, will reflect on the content from your mammary gland which comes out of your nipple. Example, when you breast feed your baby, the same happens to your milk.

There is also an other theory which underwire bras could be the cause of that problem. By wearing underwire bras, you are cutting off your mammary glands, your lymphatic and your circulatory system.

In order to see a change, you should look to correct these problems.

All my best

could it be related to breast cancer because i am having this issue and it is so embarrassing and I have a lump in R breast that is painful. Does anyone know if the onion taste could be linked to cancer?

Cancer does not taste of anything. If it did, we coud just have licked our breasts instead of doing mamograms.

Please see your doctor urgently about the lump you are feeling.

Mines tastes the same way, i dont suck them but someone does.. she doesnt seem to have a problem with it but it bothers me. i also have lumps in my brest but when i got a sonogram of them it didnt appear to be a tumor. Just tissue.
