I have fibro-cystic breast.  Last night, I had a pain in the areola area.  There was a lump and what seemed to be a pimple.  I squeezed it and there was discharge, but then the pain kind of went away.

This morning, it seems more swollen and there is a yellow, thick discharge from my nipple if I squeeze it. Should I be concerned? Or is it most likely just a pimple?

Dear SandyB, It sounds like there could possibly be some infection going on.  If it persists, worsens, or you begin to run a fever you should check with your doctor.
