I forget to say I am 37 and I have no lumps that I can feel.
Bloody discharge from the nipple can be associated with many different conditions.Most often it could be an intraductal papilloma which is a noncancerous tumor.
Also,the bleeding can happen from inflammation in the ducts, reaction to drugs, dilatation of the mammary ducts(duct ectasia), and less commonly a cancerous tumor.A lump cannot always be felt (palpable).Also a mammogram often does not show papillomas,but an ultrasound may be helpful.The bloody discharge must be examined under the microscope(called cytological examination) for a diagnosis.Your physician most probably will recommend it.
Could it be hormonal at all? I am so freaked out! When you squeeze the nipple (which I know you shouldn't but I keep doing it to check if it still there), it looks like that duct really opens up.
You should stop squeezing the nipple,the more you do the more it will keep bleeding.There are many conditions that could cause this problem and the majority are not indicative of breast cancer.It's really impossible to know with certainty what's going on, unless some kind of tests are run for a correct diagnosis.
Sorry if I can't be more helpful,but try to calm down this could be a benign condition but your doctor is the only one who can investigate this problem and give you the answer you are seeking.
So even squeezing it will cause it to bleed? The more research I do the more I am finiding that it is not cancer, but I am still worried. I feel so sick and can't eat!
Thanks for your advice.
Has anybody else had this problem? I am keen to hear! I am panicing I have cancer.
Can somebody please help me. I am really stressing I have cancer.
I have had bleeding from my right nipple and I'm freaking out about it also. Have you seen your dr yet. I haven't and this has been happening for 3 months.
