I am a male of 50years and of recent I noticed white thick discharge from my breast when pressed. What can be happening to me.

I am a male of 50years and of recent I noticed white thick discharge from my breast when pressed. What can be happening to me.

Breast discharge: Galactorrhea or milk production, is often caused by a high prolactin level or a testosterone deficiency. The thick white tissue debris comes out first. Because there is a 1% chance of breast cancer in males, your physician may also recommend a mammogram, MRI, or U/S to rule that out. Unilateral breast discharge is more worrisome. http://plasticsurgery4u.com/puffy_nipples/male_nipple_discharge.htm ...Read more

Had a breast u/s last wk and result was only fluid filled cyst. Do these go away over time? It's little tender when pressed but not painful. About 2cm

If it does not resolve, it can be aspirated (fluid drawn out with a needle) but this is not necessary unless it is very painful or infected. Warm compresses and or NSAIDs (ibuprofen, naproxen) may relieve any related discomfort. ...Read more

My 11 yr old felt a hard lump on her lower breast. She says it's unmovable, hard, and is a bit painful when pressed on. What could it be?

Location: If centered under the nipple, this is likely the early awakening of her breast development. It can start on one side before the other & the rapid growth stretches fibers & can cause pain to touch or when clothing rubs the area. If it is anywhere else, it would not be. Her regular doc could confirm or exclude the possibility. ...Read more
