Hi,

I am assuming that you are talking about bleeding from the nipple. Is that correct?

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.

Has she noticed any abnormal features on breast self examination like a breast lump, nipple discharge , skin changes etc?

You could consult her doctor for a clinical breast examination to clear out any doubts .

Do let us know if you have any more doubts and keep us posted on how she is doing.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.

At 43 I had a oozing bloody/milky almost rusty colored  discharge and was diagnosed with dcis (stage 0 breast cancer). Last year at 46 I had a bloody red discharge from the other nipple which truned out to be  a fibroadema ( a small benign growth). Your mom should get a  biospy and  that will be able to confirm what it is.  Best of luck to her.
