Probably not: If a nipple discharge is associated with a medication, it is probably due to that medication, and no something more serious like a cancer. In this case it should stop when the medication stops. However, sometimes there is more than one thing going on, or something rare. Check with your healthcare provider if in doubt. ...Read more

Hi, I have nipple discharge recently but now it become scab . Its not painful . I have eczema which is very vad. Can I know if this is cancer?
Not likely: Not likely. Did you squeeze your nipple or did it have discharge spontaneously? Spontaneous one is more worrisome but still more likely a hormone problem than cancer. If you squeeze it or have been scratching your nipple a lot from eczema, you could have stimulated your brain to cause breast milk production. Either way, you should see a doctor to get eczema under control and do a breast exam. ...Read more
Not usually: Breast pain and nipple discharge are infrequently signs of cancer. Pain may be related to fibrocystic changes or perhaps infection or inflammation.

Can you have a lump with nipple discharge milky no foul odor on one breast only and not be cancer?
I'm 26 w/ family history of breast cancer at a young age.. I found a painful ropy mass/nipple discharge but my dr wants to wait on a us due to my age?
Very astute: Mass are a young age are less likely to be cancer but your family history is concerning. The character of your discharge would support one or another. For certain, it needs to be looked at by a professional, and would suggest a breast surgeon to see it. There are instances where watching it would be ok but a more extensive history and physical exam are needed to figure that out! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bilateral nipple discharge with stimulation, cytology was negative, no lump or mass seen on u/s.Is this accurate test for breast cancer?
Sort of: Cytology is not a great test to rule out cancer in the case of nipple discharge. Ultrasound is a good test but also doesn't rule out cancer. However bilateral discharge, only with stimulation, is extremely unlikely to represent cancer, especially at your age. Unilateral, spontaneous discharge is more concerning, as is bloody nipple discharge. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
