Worried about nipple discharge
« on: June 30, 2014, 11:07:59 AM »
This morning before I got in the shower I noticed a couple little spots of fluid on my pajama t shirt. I tried squeezing my breast and nipple and couldn't get any fluid out.

I'm 26 years old. No family history of any type of cancer, but I'm really worried. It seemed clear (didn't leave any stain on my shirt) and was coming from only my right breast, which is also concerning me. Has anyone ever had this?

I get this a lot.  I actually went through a "breast cancer scare"...had a mammo and ultrasound and everything.  When the doctor squeezed, clear fluid came out.  Of course I freaked.  But he said that more than likely it was hormonal.  Since I was also having pain and a swollen node in the under the arm..(total freak out)!!  He did the testing.  Everything was fine.   It was hormonal... :)

Was it only one breast? Or was it both? Mine is only the right one, which is what scares me.

You would think if it were hormonal it would be both breasts? Was it clear?

Do you have children? It is not at all uncommon to be able to express fluid even years after pregnancy.

I have a friend who had mastitis last year. Her youngest child is 6!

Ok I actually was able to squeeze a little out just now and held it under a light and it did actually look a little yellowish. Trying not to freak out :-( but I'm really worried now. I'm in vacation for another five weeks!!

I've had a cloudy discharge from just my left breastfeeding and it turned out to be nothing.   My mom had breastfeeding cancer at my age so it really freaked me out.  But, it turned out to be hormonal. 

Try to relax and enjoy your vacation.

I'm so scared now. I'm vacationing at my parents house, and if I leave they're going to think I'm crazy. But I'm so worried!
