Forum Name: Breast Cancer

Question: Blood discharging from nipple


 mvernon - Wed Jul 25, 2007 7:54 am

31 year old female. Had ductal ecstasia year and a half ago. Now have blood discharging from same nipple. Nipple is scaley and appear to have swollen lymph node in arm pit. No palpable mass in breast. Have a history of stroke and cervical cancer. No family history of breast cancer. Should I contact surgeon who did original breast surgery? Should I be concerned that this is cancer?

User avatar Of course nobody can say if you have cancer just by symptoms. However, you should see a doctor to have this evaluated, especially since you have had troubles in the past. You should be able to see your regular gynecologist for this evaluation.
