There's nothing to link nipple piercings with cancer of any kind that I know of, however piercings of any kind, as a puncture wound, are susceptible to infection and scarring without a religious cleaning routine, and sometimes even with one (it happened to me, though not with a nipple piercing). Nipples piercings can on occasional cause difficulty for a woman planning to breastfeed as well.
