Question: breast problems

 hmiwonderwhy - Mon Jul 25, 2005 11:35 am

I am a 41 female taking Paxil 60 mg for past year.. Left nipple disharge started about a year ago, greenish color. Now it looks black or dark greenish black. Left nipple has started to invert over past year also. I'm also having pain in what feels to be my heart, soreness in left breast, and left arm pain. I suffer frequently from neck and shoulder blade pain, feels like muscle spasms. I'm having a mammogram and ultrasound tomorrow, but I just want someone to level with me. Everything I have read, it sounds like early cancer symptoms. Just level with me and give me your opinion.
