About Me: Female, 67, Willis, MI, member since Oct 2009
I have had 3 breast biopsies of five different spots in the last 5 years. I also have a strong family history of breast cancer and proliferative changes on my pathology reports. Just diagnosed with LCIS in October, 2009.
I have a question and i need your help regarding breast discharges -
My question - Hi, i'm 20 and have been having breast discharges from both of my breast for 2 years(yellowish or straw colored). The doctor had prescribed Eposoft and Evion 200 as medication but today i noticed a light reddish dried discharge on my brazier on my left side but when i lightly squeeze it to check it secrets the same yellowish/straw color.
is it possible that a blood vessel on my left breast may be raptured oozing slight blood because when i squeeze it again lightly it still discharges the same yellowish/straw colored liquid
Please help me what the problem might be.
Hello, I'm so glad you left me a message. I feel better knowing there's someone who has had a similar experience. Can you tell me if you don't mind, whether you were told to have surgery to remove the area around the biopsy when you were diagnosed with LCIS? The radiologist who did my biopsy recommends this surgery but many websites I've seen state that surgery isn't needed for this condiion- only more frequent monitoring for breast cancer. I'm sooo afraid of surgery-especially after the traumatic biopsy experience. Plus if the "atypical cells" are neatly contained in the lobules then I worry that surgery will allow them to spread. Again, I thank you for making contact and for you good wishes. I wish you all of the best too. My name is Ann by the way:)
