Hi there.

These growths can be superficial skin conditions such as infections or hyperkeratoses (increased cell turn over).  This should be evaluated by your doctor, since if this is infection then a course of antibiotics may be warranted.  Rarely, this could be a manifestation of early Paget's disease of the nipple.  A biopsy may also be applicable if your doctor deemed it necessary.

Regards.
