bumps on areola
Recently I discovered there are several little bumps on my areola, actually on both breasts, that will not go away.  They look exactly the same as if you were cold and and all the little bumps were to appear in that area.   They do not itch and are not painful.  The also are not open & do not have any discharge.  The skin itself feels normal. I have tried looking for information about this but have come up empty. I am only 25, but I know you could get cancer at any age.  Is this something I should be really concerned about or is this normal?

Dear Sunny0607:  You are likely describing a normal feature of breast anatomy. The little lumps on the aereola are called montgomery's glands. They are entirely normal.
