Hey hun

I don't really know much about the signs of breast cancer, but it is a topic that is close to my heart, as my auntie just died as a result of it.
I'm sure that you have nothing to worry about. Our breasts, and nipples can often change, especially during menstruation. However i am not a doctor. If you're really worried about it then i advise you to go to a doctor and have it checked out. Better be safe than sorry. And well done for being so sensible and observant hun. :) I think all women do need to be aware and observant of their bodies.
Nuff Love

Nipples change according to temperature and stimulation. When you're warm, your breasts will be a lot more cone shaped and the nipples will be soft and flawless, but in the cold, your breasts will be very round and pert, with wrinkly nipples, and I'm guessing the spots are just wrinkled areas of skin. Also, bits of fat can accumulate in the nipples making it look as though you have white dots in them. To check for breast cancer properly, ask a specialist to teach you how to look for the signs. Normally if you have a feel around with the tips of your fingers in the shower you can detect any abnormal lumps. If you're still worried, I recommend you see your doctor to put your mind at ease.
