My boyfriend just told me that I shouldn't pinch my nipples because I could get cancer from it. I want to know whether he's lying or not. Also, my breasts really really hurt. Also, the part that carries the milk from the ducts is really skinny now... I'm worried. Really worried. Please Help.

You could get breast cancer whether you pinch your nipples or not. There is no evidence to suggest the two could be related.
No I don't think so.
I believe there is no study associating trauma/nipple pinching with breast cancer. Do your breasts hurt all the time? Painful breasts are associated with hormonal changes: your period. I don't understand what's wrong with the duct parts. Do you have inverted nipples?
No Breast cancer happens due to hormones..and nt nipple pinching..hw old are you?
In a totally theoretical sense, yes. If you are pinching them enough to cause a fair amount of trauma, the frequent regeneration could allow for cellular mutations to occur. Sort of like how you can end up with skin cancer after being sunburned. In reality, though, no. No you cannot get breast cancer pinching your nipples. Your breasts may hurt due to menstrual cycle. If you are concerned about this, talk to your doctor. If it is a male doctor and you are embarrassed about talking about it with him, you can talk about it with a nurse in his office. She can give you the information you need, show you how to perform a breast self exam, and also help you in talking to the doctor about this subject.
No. Don't be worried. There is no link between pinching nipples and breast cancer. Breast cancer doesn't really have a cause yet, but is most likely hereditary. If you are scared go to the doctor to get an examination to be sure. But your boyfriend is wrong
