discoloration of the nipples

I have noticed in the past few days that my left nipple has been a real dark almost black color and then it fades away...I only notice this when I am in the shower... is there anything to this discoloration, I know that I am not pregnant and so it just has me thinking should I be concerned and contact my family doctor...

I'm not sure what might be causing this discoloration ... without any other symptoms I would wonder if it might have something to do with circulation andthe change in temperature due to showering. If this is the only time you notice the problem I don't think I would be overly concerned but it wouldn't hurt to  ck. with your Dr. about it.   Regards ....
