I'll keep everyone posted. Hopefully I'll have a great answer by Friday. I haven't had the discharge even when squeezing in over a week now, but I'm still scared.

Alright. Just had the ultrasound and the doctor came in and said she didn't see anything concerning on the ultrasound, but because of the discharge, she wanted to cover all of her bases, so she ordered a mammogram too. Just had that done (I'm at the hospitals imaging center) so now I'm waiting to see the doctor for results. Freaking out is not even the word for how I'm feeling right now. The doctor said she would give me the results before I leave though, so that's good - I won't have to wait in wonder for results. Just praying everything looks good :-/

Alright - saw the doctor. She said everything looks normal. However, she said that if I continue to have the discharge, then I would need another procedure where they go into the individual duct that's leaking the discharge and fill it up with a fluid then take xrays. She said sometimes a mass will show on that, and the procedure isn't comfortable to say the least, because they put a catheter up through one of your milk ducts. But she said that since I'm not having any discharge currently, she can't do it, because she wouldn't know exactly which duct to go into. Also, she said that women in my age range typically don't have masses like that, but if I did, it's very VERY likely to be something benign. She said if there WAS a mass found on this extra procedure, and it WAS cancer, then it would be in the earliest stage possible. But she said its HIGHLY HIGHLY unlikely because my mammogram and ultrasounds were clean, and the discharge has stopped.

She said if the discharge happens again, then follow up with my doctor at home and see a breast surgeon to do that extra procedure. But she doesn't see any cause for concern right now.
