During a mammogram I had a sticky brown/red discharge.
Went to a breast surgeon and he took sample of discharge
sent it to pathology and it was negative. Mammogram was
negative also, but I have very dense breasts. He wants
to do a ductal excision without doing any more testing.
I asked for additional tests and am getting a second opinion.
I've had no discharge before or since the mammogram.
Can this be anything besides a pappiloma?
My sister experienced a nipple discharge during her first mammogram two weeks ago. At that time she was told that she may be called back for another test. She is 47years old. Her family doctor has received the test results and asked her to come in to discuss them next Thurs Dec 1.
I am 59 and have been treated for DCIS but from what I have read on the net it would seem that nipple discharge is often not cancer. The discharge has not occurred since the mammogram.
