Just recently I have developed a large white area on the tip of one nipple. The nipple with the white on it hurts a lotto the touch. Both of my nipples are sore but the one with the white hurts the most. I am a few days late for my period and I am experiencing severe mood swings and nausia but I had a negative pregnancy test (I am doing another one in a week if I do not start my period). Can anyone tell me what this white area on the top of my nipple is from? They both have some white onthe tips but one has more prominent white.

I see that there were no answers to your post. I was just wondering if you ended up being pregnant. I am having the exact same thing and can't find any good answers.

I have been looking for an answer to this, did you end up pregnant? I did a test a few weeks ago and it came up negative, but my nipples are SO sore with white tips.

Re: white on the tip of my nipple
Unless you have an infection, you had a milk discharge. Male and female babies can have it. While menstruating breasts become tender. You could be milking in combination with menstruation breast tenderness. No need for a photo. Go to your doctor for certainty.

I am an adult male and I had a white discharge from one nipple. Not a big deal. I have to exercise like crazy for a male chest or I swear my left chest when obese looks like a female breast. I have an equivalent C cup chest measurement. In a year, with very little fat, I might have a D cup of muscle on my chest. It is just another inch from isometric exercise. No big deal. I have more cleavage than some people and my chest is muscular with some lower chest fat that is going away over time.

One way to test if it is milk, put it in a container, add citrus juice or vinegar. If the white stuff merges into clumps, it was milk. You can make buttons out of milk with some citrus juice or vinegar.

could be a tumor
Oh, another post suggested it can be from a tumor. Have a tangible doctor check it out. If it is just milk, no problem.
