Nipple Discoloration

Over the past two months, one of my nipples have become dark purple and is a little larger than the other ne. It isn't painful, but it dosen't go away. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Hi.
Are there other signs and symptoms aside from nipple discoloration?
Nipple discoloration is a non-specific sign.  It could be secondary to an infection, or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
It would be best to consult your doctor for proper evaluation.
Good luck.
