Re: Scared out of my mind
It sounds like you have an abcess there. Very scary as none of us want to think about our nipples bleeding and producing pus. I highly doubt you're facing anything like cancer based on your symptoms.
However, it's very important that you get to a doctor ASAP as you will likely need to be put on an antibiotic to prevent the infection from getting deeper into your breast tissue or even going systemic (into your blood stream). I'd suggest you go to urgent care tomorrow since it's the weekend (go to the ER if urgent care isn't open), and don't put this off. As you've already been dealing with this for 3 weeks, it's possible there's a nasty bacteria such as staph causing this infection, and you really don't want to take the chance of this getting worse as it could cause you to lose part of your breast - unlikely, but possible. I'm not trying to scare you, but I want you to realize how serious this is and how important it is that you be seen ASAP.
Also, don't be embarrassed by this as doctors are used to seeing much worse than this on a regular basis. They are there to help you and get you well.
Best wishes on getting this treated and resolved quckly! Let us know how it goes.
