Reasons Of Nipple Discharge

Nipple discharge is a fluid liquid that comes out of your nipple. You might have to squeeze the nipple to get the fluid to come out, or it could seep out on its own. Nipple discharge is common during reproductive years, even if you’re not pregnant or breastfeeding. 

Discharge is usually not serious. But still, you must know the causes of nipple discharge. So it’s worth consulting with a breast surgeon.

Here are some symptoms you might have with nipple discharge:

  • Breast pain or tenderness

  • Lump or swelling in the breast or around the nipple

  • Nipple changes, like turning inward, dimpling, changing color, itching, or scaling

  • Skin changes, such as rash or lesions

  • Redness around the breast area

  • breast size changes, such as one breast that’s larger or smaller than the other

  • You may suffer from fever

  • Irregular periods are also a symptom of nipple discharge

  • nausea or vomiting

Breast cancer can cause nipple discharge, an early form of breast cancer that starts in the milk ducts. It can also happen with Paget’s disease of the breast, a rare type of breast cancer that involves the nipple.

If you do have breast cancer, the discharge will probably only come from one breast. You may have a lump in your breast, too. If you face such symptoms must consult with breast surgeons.
