Smelly Breast discharge

I have been noticing a strong odor coming from myself. I have narrowed it down to my left breast. Every day when I take off my bra it smells terrible. I have even had others asked what the smell is. What is it?. Should I be worried? I am 43 and never had anything like this before. Please help

I would be very concerned and get to a doctor immediately.

In my opinion you should have your breasts checked by a medical professional to make sure there is nothing serious.Odors sometimes is caused also by a Fungal/yeast infection and a dermatologist would be better suited to detect this problem.Please go to have this problem checked.Take care.

I just reread you post,and noticed that you are talking about a discharge from your nipple?,in that case Fungal/yeast infection would not be the cause of the bad odor but a problem with the breast itself.Yes,seek medical advice,the sooner the better.
