Question Blood/thick pus squeezed from nipple. OUCH!

Does anyone know what this most likely is.
It's my left breast, 'bad' breast. Have had mastitis while breastfeeding a good many times with 2 kids. Haven't been breastfeeding for 3 years.
My nipple was really sore suddenly. I squeezed it pretty hard and thick pus came out with a POP follwed by some blood. Feels like a hard tube in my nipple. YIKES!
Is this a infection of a gland or duct?
Is this cancer?
I'll go to the doctor.....but in the mean time??
thanks alot

Re: Blood/thick pus squeezed from nipple. OUCH!

I have a friend who had the same thing and she was diagnosed with intraductal papilloma. non-cancerous, but she's screened often.

But what you describe could also be a symptom of a breast cancer. One doesn't know until tests are done.

Since you've had lots of mastitis, it's possible that this is a more intensive infection...

What colour was the pus? white? green? yellow? brown? black?

Let us know the outcome please.
