When nipples turn white,it could be a blood circulation problem when the blood flow to the nipple is limited .
The pain in your left breast, may not even be related to a breast problem,but could be due to several other factors, such as muscle strain,your ribs, your spine ,acid reflux and also your heart .
Most men do not feel breast pain due to breast cancer,but infections,cysts or fibroadenomas could cause breast pain, just the same as in women.
I doubt that the shingles you had on your head ,could cause breast pain, unless the chest area itself was affected.
Yes, I think it's best to consult your doctor for a clinical breast exam and also to make sure that your heart is healthy.
Wishing you all the best...
