Cancer or something else?

Hi. About 3 weeks ago I woke up with pain in my right breast. The pain got severe for 2 days and I had approx 3 drops of clear oily fluid coming out. Eventually the pain reduced and no fluid. I went for check up as I could feel a hard lump. I was told to do a pregnancy test and polactine blood test. Am not pregnant for sure as I just got my menses. Am still waiting for the blood result and in the mean time the pain has gone completely. Am still on my period and I can feel that the lump has deceased in size. Has it happened to anyone?
To note also, I had been in a very stressful situation since the past few months. I recently got married and change country.

Hello, welcome to the forum. Thank you for your question.  I am hoping that you've taken an official pregnancy test as many women who are pregnant actually have bleeding they mistake as their period. A pregnancy test is the best way to know and am a bit surprised they didn't give you a test at your doctor's office. Some women do produce what seems like lactation when pregnant as well as when they have a hormonal shift. Prolactemia is another occurrence. You can have a clogged milk duct which would feel like a lump or an infection within the ducts. Lots of possibilities but definitely something to further explore.  What did the blood test reveal? We'll go from there.  Did they order a breast mammogram or ultrasound?

Both pregnancy and prolactine test came negative. I have an ultrasound scheduled in 2 weeks.
Following up to see how the ultrasound went. Can you give us an update? Thank you
