Unhappy Clear Discharge From Right Nipple ? Very Scared

Has anyone else experienced a clear discharge from 1 nipple, and what was the outcome? I am very scared that I have breast cancer, since my mother died of it. I have an appt. next Monday with a breast surgeon, and I am going out of my mind with worry.

Re: Clear Discharge From Right Nipple ? Very Scared

It's actually not at all uncommon for some clear or whitish fluid to leak from a woman's nipple. In fact, most women's nipples will produce a small amount of liquid if squeezed, regardless of whether you've ever had children.

If it's a lot of fluid, enough to make a mess of your clothing, and only on one side, that might indicate a problem, though not necessarily cancer.

If it were blood, then you should definitely be concerned.

As it is? Don't worry. Hopefully the surgeon will set your mind fully at ease.

Yes, Iv'e experienced that from both. However it never really occurred to me that it might be cancer. Also never thought to ask/or tell anyone about it.

Re: Clear Discharge From Right Nipple ? Very Scared

What happened with your visit to breast surgeon re clear discharge from one breast? I have this right now -- one breast, just a drop or two, appears clear. Have not decided yet whether to worry about it or not.

I'm 60, post-menopausal of course, and have not noticed this for years. However, it was common to me years ago; spontaneous or when I squeezed a bit (which I never did until I first noticed it without squeezing.)

I have been told off and on that I have cystic breasts (or did when younger, anyway). No doctor ever said this was a problem. I was told by GYN that I only needed to worry if discharge was red or black -- and that clear, yellow, pale green or straw colors were fine.

Curious as to what you learned. Hope you got good news. Please share.
