I'm a 19 year old female and in the past few weeks I've noticed several brown spots on the areola (area around nipple). I had a cyst removed from my breast a few years ago and ever since I have been pretty worried about any sort of change in that area. I have never been to a tanning booth, so skin damage seems improbable. I also went through puberty pretty early on. Is this normal, or should I have it checked out? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
