redness on nipple

I'm 19 years old and last week i noticed a red patch on my nipple about the size of a nickle. It's a little bit bumpy and barely raised but doesn't hurt or itch. I don't know if this means it could be cancerous or if this normal. I'm scared and don't know what to think.

hi,
If there are no other symptoms aside this red spot, I strongly doubt that it has anything to do with breast cancer.The red spot could be caused by hormonal changes as well as any kind of skin disease,like fungal infection,eczema,psoriasis... etc.
It is very difficult to precisely tell you what's going on without investigation.
Obviously this red patch on your nipple is worrying and the only advice I could give is to see a doctor/dermatologist so that this problem can be taken care of with medication if needed.
Take care and best wishes..
