There was a little bump around my right nipple and I squeezed it and a yellow substance came out of it inside the yellow substance was a black dot?

There was a little bump around my right nipple and I squeezed it and a yellow substance came out of it inside the yellow substance was a black dot?

Oil gland matter: The breast has sebaceous or oil glands to moisturize the nipple. If the duct to the skin surface gets plugged the oily substance can oxidize and turn dark (a blackhead) and if expressed this could look like a black dot amidst the normal yellowish sebum. Moist heat will often help open and unblock a blocked oil gland. A too tight bra can predispose to these, especially if perspiring with exercise. ...Read more

Glands: Hi
Sorry to hear you've been dealing with rash issues. There are glands under the arm pit that can commonly become clogged and become infected. We have larger glands there that you wouldn't find elsewhere, like say your forearm. If you shave, it is also common to get ingrown hairs. Usually these issues are self resolving.

How to tell my parents that I need biopsy to inspect my bump at my lip with a black dot at the center? How to tell them? I'm horrified. How?

That's odd....: If a person talks with his parents on a usual, normal basis, then there is nothing special about telling them about a bump that needs a biopsy. It is done the same way that any normal, everyday conversation is done. However, which doctor says the bump needs a biopsy? On the face, a specialized dermatologic surgeon or plastic surgeon can give an opinion. Presumably, it's not just a blackhead. ...Read more
