Bloody discharge out of one montgomery gland on right breast. Mamo and us negative, pathology inconclusive. Does this mean no cancer? What could it be

Bloody discharge out of one montgomery gland on right breast. Mamo and us negative, pathology inconclusive. Does this mean no cancer? What could it be

Pathology report?: A common cause of bloody nipple discharge is a benign papilloma. Most times, the duct has to be excised to remove the papilloma both to see if there is cancer present and to stop the bloody discharge. I am not sure what type of biopsy you had (needle biopsy or excision), not sure what inconclusive means. Consider getting a copy of your pathology report and resubmit your question. ...Read more

Yesterday I had bloody discharge from an areolar gland. Saw md and have mammogram scheduled. What conditions could cause this?

Bloody discharge: Most of the times it's due to a benign papilloma, a tumor that grows within the duct. Bloody nipple discharge in someone under 40 is caused by cancer in less than 3-5% of cases so I would not be too worried but certainly agree with having it checked. Best to you. ...Read more

I am Ashokkumar 26 years old suffered with fissure for past 6 years and I took oxerute oinment yesterday. But I got irritation, pain and pus discharge?

See specialist: Your symptoms sound more serious than a fissure alone, and it should not take 6 yrs to heal!

Is a boil that is still forming contagious (just red and sore, no pus, discharge, or head etc)??

Not contagious, but: A boil usually results from an infected sebaceous gland or cyst. Its mainstay of care is draining it; topical antibiotic use would not help and systemic antibiotics work better. Clinically, it is not contagious as long as not rupturing to contact micro-injured skin surface. To decide what you may need, seek evaluation timely. How? Follow steps in http://formefirst.

I have a slight itching on my penis head with the head being also sensitive to touch & uncomfortable. I was treated for a UTI on Thursday using amoxcillin and something else in a drip for 3 days... Most of my symptoms were done except for a pus discharge

Probable STD: Discharge from the penis is usually due to STD, such as gonorrhea, nongonococcal urethritis, or chlamydia. True UTI is rare in men your age, but many doctors don't understand and misdiagnose urethritis as UTI. I suggest stop all current treatment and see an infection or STD specialist. (In Japan, most STD specialists are urologists.) Your sex partner (s) also must be checked. Good luck! ...Read more
