Dear shadiebare, Nipple discharge is most often from benign (non-cancerous) conditions. Some women are more prone to more discharge including women on; birth control pills, certain blood pressure medications or on major tranquilizers. These medications increase prolactin levels in the body. There is also certain life periods when a person is more likely to get discharge than others: there may be more discharge at puberty and at menopause than the years in-between.
Seeing as this discharge is spontaneous (it happened without squeezing at least initially), you may want to have it checked out.
i am 29 yr. old woman, i had my still born baby on nov 22nd 2003,that was full time delivary, From Fev i started taking birth control pill due to my vaginal bleeding, i stopped taking pill from may. From july i noticed a small amount of milky discharg from my right nipple, it happenes when i squeeze my right nipple.Any information would be greatly appreciated. I have been a nervous wreck here all day, very scared. Thank you.
I'm a 28 year old woman. I have been having discharge from my left breast for about two years now. I have told my Physician and she has done nothing but check my Prolactin level. I have had a lump under(beneath my nipple since I was around 15 years old)she said it was nothing to worry about. I have recently been having a large amount of discharge. It only comes out when I squeeze my breast or if any amount of pressure is applied. The discharge is clear and sometimes cloudy, no odor at all but it is sticky feeling. It sprays out of my nipple like when I breast fed my children if I would squeeze my breast. I just recently saw that it's starting to come out of the right breast but not very much. What should I do? I'm very concerned and I was wondering if I should get a different doctor. Is this something I should be concerned about? Do you have any suggestions?
