Breast Bleeding

For a couple of years now I have had what appears to be a pimple or black-head on my left breast, just above my nipple... there is this white stringy discharge, however lately it is a lot of yellowish fluid that has a foul odor... My doctor has said that it is just a blemish from hair folicles and doesn't appear to be anything dangerous... probably caused by an in-grown hair... yesterday while in the shower when I turned around and the water hit my left breast, I got a major burning sensation on my left nipple.... I thought I was going to die... I touched it with my hand to see if it was sore to the touch and just the nipple area hurt like hell... once I got out of the shower and dried off, I glanced in the mirror and saw blood running down my stomach from my left breast... I used the towel and for 20 minutes could not get it to stop and could not see a cut or anything, so I couldn't figure out what was wrong... I ended up having to wear a band-aid because I couldn't stop the bleeding.. last night I noticed it had stopped but the nipple is still extremely tender.... what could this be???
