I have a large sore on the side of my lest breast. SOmetimes it is an open wound and at other times it has a scab on the top of it. I dont know if it has anything to do with breast cancer but I was hoping that someone could answer my question. I am only 18 and getting married in july and dont want to have to continue to have to worry about this. Latley it has seamed to be getting smaller but the size, color and feeling often change. Sometimes it hurts and at other times I forget that its there due to the fact that there is no pain. I would greatly appreciate some kind of explination if at all possible.
I was hoping that I wouldnt have to go to the doctor. I know that I need to, but I dont have any insurance and we are barley getting by as is. I have felt my self often to make sure that there are no lumps but I cant tell whether there is or not? How can I tell if there is one? I have never had a mamagram done by a doctor. There has been soreness in my breasts latley,but not server. I have a tiny bit of white dischage that goops up in the hole of my niple every once in a while but I wasnt sure if that was abnormal or not? I am very concerned!
A nipple discharge is significant and needs to be investigated further if it -
- is persistent,
- comes out without squeezing the breasts or any stimulation,
- is bloody or foul smelling or altered,
- is associated with a lump, nipple or skin changes etc.
You would need to consult with you doctor and get a clinical examination done to find out the cause of your symptoms.

I will make sure to get to the doctor the second that I have a chance thank you! I also have one more question for you, my belly button often hurts and when I go to clean it some yellowish stuff comes out and it doesnt smell very pleasant! Do you know what be causing this?
