Need to examine: While the risk is low, the symptoms you described are of concern for a particular type of breast cancer. It would be prudent to see a doctor to get it checked out. Wish you good health.
I'm having problems with one nipple (burning, itching, bleeding and leaking) punch biposy clear and steroid cream isn't working...what should I do?
Go back to your doc: So the good news is that your punch biopsy is clear. The bad news is that you're still suffering despite steroid cream. Best thing to do in this situation is to go back to your GP and tell him/her what you've just noted above so that s/he can work w/you to find solution, whether referring to another doc or trying a different medication.
Why wld I leak a milk looking substance frm my nipples whn I'm NT pregnant nd stll a virgin it's been going on for 2 mnths hvn't told any1 yet shld i?
Prolactinoma: You should see your doctor and get checked for something called prolactinoma. This is usually abnormal secretion of prolactin from pituitary gland. Treatment is usually medication or surgery, if diagnosed as prolactinoma.
Male/female vs isol8: If the is in a male it should be immediately evaluated. In a female it determines timing and onset. For example following pregnancy this is not unusual and binding of the breasts may help to decrease drainage. This also normally occurs on occasion following breast implantation. However, if this is a new onset condition, hormonal evaluation and possible imaging for pituitary adenoids are included.
36 weeks and I notice some flaking around my nipples & a very weird unusual odor coming from my nipple. No leaking of milk, why is this happening?
Nipple discharge: Hi, it is time to see your doctor for further evaluation of this discharge, it sounds like you might have an infection there, please see your provider ASAP. Good luck and congrats on pregnancy.
Hi I have milk leaking from my breasts, I just took a test its show neg. And my both sides of nipples feels a bit pain. And I gain weight, is it mean I am pregnant?
Please double check: Your pregnancy test with a healthcare provider. If you are lactating (and you are not nursing an infant) and have weight gain, chances are pretty good that you are pregnant. And if you are not, then the healthcare provider will need to check you for other conditions that can give you lactation. Good luck and thank you for trusting in HealthTap.
My nipples are leaking what looks like breast milk, I'm male and 19 this is the 1st time its happened, I'm also on tamoxifen if this helps now for 1 w?
Follow up with Dr.: Some doctors use tamoxifen to block Estrogens in teen boys and men with breast development. An endocrinologist can help check the hormones to see if there is an unusual imbalance. If there is are unusual hormone results, the doctor can look for the source of the problem (if something is producing excess hormones). Normal teen boys often have temporary breast bud (s) development.See 2 more doctor answers
I missed my Depo-Provera by 1 month. Didn't have aperiod in between shots but have noticed darkening around my nipples and I'm leaking milk could I be preg?
Could be.: Sometimes the stars just line up right. I would certainly check a home pregnancy test.
Can I be pregnant? My son is 19 months old and my nipples started leaking milk again my period came two weeks late but I did get it. And I have been having morning sickness.
It's: It's less likely you are pregnant since your period came, but it is still a possibility. The only way to know if you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you - whichever is easier for you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period. A blood test can tell if you are pregnant as soon as 7 days after conception and a doctor's urine pregnancy test can tell if you are pregnant around when you next period should come.
20 years ago had tubal I just my period 8 days ago I have tender nipples leaking milk appetite changes dislikes and likes mood change uranate more?
Wait it Out: I would watch and wait for now. If persists or re-occurs with next cycle, you need further laboratory testing.
Help my nipples are leaking what appears to be breast milk! This has never happened before! I don't know if this helps but I weight lift a lot and I'm strong.?
Very interesting!: How about asking your question again, but add details such as age, gender, duration of symptoms, pregnancy status, etc... Breasts make milk under certain hormonal conditions. Sometimes it is normal, while other times it is not. One can see a primary care doctor to check whether his or her situation is normal. Sometimes, blood tests are done, but other times they are not needed.
My son is almost 3 years old and I never breast feed but when I have sex or I'm horny my nipple leaks milk like I squeeze it and it comes out?
Poss high prolactin: Prolactin is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland, and is normally elevated in pregnancy which leads to milk production, but can also be elevated by some drugs, hypothyroidism, stress, frequent nipple stimulation and pituitary tumor, although in about a third, no cause is found. I recommend checking with your doctor who may screen you for treatable causes. An MRI maybe done to look for tumor
Itchy nipples: You may have eczema, which can affect soft sensitive skin. If you have any other part of body with dry skin patches, it would be a likely cause. You can also think about superficial fungal ingal infection called ring worm. An exam would be helpful if OTC meds don't help resolve the condition.
Itch: That either the fabric is irritating, the detergent is irritating or you have an infection brewing. Best is to be seen by a doctor if it does not go away with changing the first two things I mentioned.
