Unhappy Areola Discharge

My 14 year old daughter is experiencing a clear, sometimes yellowish discharge coming from her right breast areola. She does not have any pain and the discharge only appears when she puts pressure on it or squeeze the breast. I took her to our primary care physician and they are recommending that she see a breast specialist. However, the appointment is a week away, and I want to go there somewhat informed. I am, of course, very concerned. I have had 2 biopsys myself and I do not want her to go through that at such a young age. There is no history of breast cancer in my family. Does anyone know what this can be? I would greatly appreciate any feedback.

Re: Areola Discharge

Wow, I'm sorry you got no replies. What did the doctor say?
My guess is that it may be a (benign) papilloma.

Re: Areola Discharge

It is no doubt way after your doctor appt but I need to offer a reply. I experienced a discharge not long after having a breast augmentation. I went to the surgeon who did the augmentation as well as my primary doctor. Neither one had any idea. About three years later I was diagnosed with DCIS stage 0 breast cancer. Thru my cancer research, I read that a discharge from the nipple area CAN be a sign of breast cancer. Please note I said CAN. Go to a specialist.
