Greetings, it has been 5 years since I noticed this brownish thing on my areola. At first, i thought it was dirt or something so I tried to remove it however, when I did that, it was painful. I just let thos brownish thing and it disappeared after few days but it came back on another part of my areola. Is this normal because of the puberty? Still 17

Hi meow,

Welcome to GRACE. It’s not unusual to have such dark spots, and it’s not likely to be a sign of cancer, but if you have concerns and want to be certain, you should see your doctor for an evaluation.
