Penis White Milky Discharge

PLEASE HELP!  I have noticed a white milky discharge from my penis.  I am married and my wife and I have only been committed to eachother, so I know it's not an STD.  But there is something else concerning me.

A couple of weeks ago I got a scrotal sac peircing in the lower front center of my scrotum sac.  That's where the testicle sac (the skin only) is pierced.  I found out that a little infection is a normal part of the healing process in any piercing, but has to be kept clean continuously for healing to be complete.  I didn't want to deal with that and decided to remove the piercing about a two or three days later.  My concern is that the white milky discharge may be the result of the piercing... could this be the case?  Could the root of all this be from an infection in my scrotum?  Or is this a totally different thing?

There is no pain in peeing.  However... I may be experiencing a slight discomfort in my bladder... I might just be being paranoid.  This raises another question.  Could the piercer who pierced me... accidentally pierced something major, like perhaps the tubes that connect to the testicles within the sac?  Could something be damaged and be causing maybe some type of urine or semen backflow?

I've done some reasearch on here and online and have come up with different possible answers.  Answers anywhere from inflammation of the urethra... to prostrate problems.  Maybe this has nothing to do with the recent piercing I recieved, and might be coincidental.  In either case... anyone's help on this will be very much appreciated.

Based on your description, it seems that the most to worry about with the piercing is an infection. But this would present with a skin reaction, redness at the least and it seems you never had this problem. It would be best to have yourself examined by the doctor to make sure the piercing does not compromise any of the tubes and tubules.
Are you talking about discharge from the urethra? Or from the piercing site? There could be some fluid that may leak out from the piercing site, light yellow, clear, not milky though. Again, let me reiterate the importance of a physical examination.

The discharge is from the urethra.  Is it possible that any infection from within the scrotum sac... may cause side effects such as this?
