Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In anatomy, an areola, plural areolae (diminutive of Latin area, "open place") is any circular area such as the colored skin surrounding the nipple. Although the term is most commonly used to describe the pigmented area around the human nipple (areola mammae), it can also be used to describe other small circular areas such as the inflamed region surrounding a pimple.Careful inspection of a mature human female nipple will reveal several small openings arranged radially around the tip of the nipple (lactiferous ducts) from where milk is released during lactation.show more
