A significant finding if it is recent

Recent inversion of a nipple, a change in the direction of the nipple, or retraction of the nipple is suggestive of malignancy. Recent nipple inversion is suggestive of malignancy, but not always indicative of a slow growing tumor. This is not a normal finding in most women nor expected during pregnancy.
