inverted nipple

I have just completed 16 radiation treatments after a lumpectomy in June.  My tumour was 0.6 cm in size, pathology showed clean edges and no lymph node involvement.  Since the surgery, my nipple has become inverted and is tender, and has started to show some slight discharge.  Should I be worried?
