Can fibrocystic breast cyst occur in one breast with discharge?

Yes. Fibrocystic breast changes and symptoms can often be felt more on one side than the other or only on one side. The discharge should be clear or yellowish. You should never see blood, as this is definitely abnormal and needs to be checked out. If you feel a lump or think you have a cyst, a sonogram should be performed to confirm that it is a fluid lump and nothing solid.
