Yellow/orange crusting in both nipples, pain in breasts & occasional sharp pain behind nipples. With Symptoms in both breasts; can Paget's be ruled out?

Yellow/orange crusting in both nipples, pain in breasts & occasional sharp pain behind nipples. With Symptoms in both breasts; can Paget's be ruled out?

Not likely Paget's: Paget's disease of the nipple arises from a deeper breast cancer extending up to the nipple surface, so often presents in just one breast. Very unlikely to have sudden simultaneous development of breast cancer with Paget's disease in both breasts. You should see a physician for proper diagnosis and treatment recommendations. ...Read more

Hi, 20 year old female, yellow crusty discharge from one nipple, its also itchy and the nipple is dry and cracked.?

Areolar rash: Studies show eczema can occur in this area, however the yellow crusty discharge gives me concern for impetiginization of likely eczema/atopic dermatitis in your nipple area. Please see MD. Likely treatment will be a steroid cream and topical antibiotic. If there is nipple inversion, mass or lump underneath the discharge you may need to rule out other conditions with a Dermatologist. ...Read more

Usually benign: Nipple discharge can be caused by a malignant lesion if it is spontaneous ie comes out on its own or is bloody
if the discharge is milky and only comes out with stimulation then it is benign and I would not be concerned it usually will stop on ts own

What does it mean when the tip of your nipple is yellow? This is regular for me.

Unclear; see a docto: I am uncertain about what this could be without a physical exam (seeing the yellowing) & knowing your history better. If no other part of your body is yellow (eyes, tongue, etc.) then it's likely not jaundice. Yellow discoloration could be dermatitis or a skin condition, or a "milk blister," part of growing up. Paget's disease of breast (a type of cancer) can start at the nipple & occur in the 20s ...Read more

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
