Bloody nipple discharge

I had some very slight drops of red blood from one breast. My dr says I have a 3.4 dilated milk duct in my breast based on a mamo and ultra sound. She does not seem overly concerned as I have no family history of breast cancer but she wants to do a "major duct excision." I am reluctant and and have been looking for alternatives. I have no other symptoms and have had no bleeding for over a month. Any suggestions?

Re: Bloody nipple discharge

I think it would be very wise to this biopsied in some way. Your doctor is right to be concerned. Having no relatives with breast cancer is no guarantee you will escape breast cancer. I had no relatives either side who have even had cancer. I had breast cancer 5 years ago.
There is no way anyone can tell what this is without a biopsy to look at this on a cell level. It will probably turn out to be nothing but if it is breast cancer.... you want to catch it as soon as possible. Take care, Sharon
