What type of leaking is occuring with your breasts? Galactorrhea is something that happens when milk is discharged via nipples when a woman is not pregnant....can signal a pituitary tumor which can occur in older women. I am one of those rare individuals who had it happen in my early 20's & also had the ammenorrhea which developed into a pituitary tumor. Safely removed...no problems since. However with any breast discharge, having it checked out is important. Breast tenderness is common with pre-menopausal women. Water retention, and even lumps that get larger and then decrease as the cycle passes can make breasts feel sore and tender. Personally I think diet also affects the tenderness in what one eats.
I am glad to hear you had some tests done. If you are not sure of them, you could go for another opinion. Otherwise, keeping track of symptoms & letting the Doctor know asap if things get worse.
There are alternative methods for dealing with breast tenderness.
