Hi,
Not sure what this color change means,but I suggest that your father should see a physician.If other abnormalities such as a lump,skin dimpling,nipple retraction, (turning inward) redness or scaling of the nipple,nipple discharge are not present,then it could indicate an infection that can cause hyper pigmentation,or perhaps a circulatory problem.
Please encourage your father not to let it go too long without a professional medical opinion.
Best wishes to both you and your Dad.

Thank you so much for your response. I told him I was looking into this for him and when i told him this site put my ? right to the breast cancer page he sort of looked scared, I felt bad for him, but i think this might push him to go back to the Dr..Why are men so stubborn?...lol
Again Thank you, Judi

Hi Judi, you are more than welcome!
I am glad you are encouraging your dad to seek medical attention.Don't give up,with love and patience I am sure he will listen to you and do the right thing.Hopefully it's nothing serious,but only his doctor can confirm that.
Yes, men can be very stubborn indeed,but we women have a natural gift called "power of  persuasion " LOL...
Again wishing all best for your Dad .
