: I have had black nipple discharge from one duct on the left nipple only. I am 32 y/o and on Premarin1.25 mg x 6 mos for a complete hysterectomy due to large hemmorhagic ovarian masses. The nipple smear showed foam cells and my doctor wants me to see a surgeon next week. Can anyone tell me what foam cells are and are they significant. Why would i need to see a surgeon
its a type of an immune cell. perhaps he wants you to see a surgeon to see why it ended up there??
