Breast leakage

I do not regularly do self breast exams and have not been to the gyno for 3 yrs. But the other night, I did a self breast exam and when I squeezed the left nipple, this almost clear to yellow fluid came out. Only a small amount but every time I squeezed it would come out. This happened to me 4 years ago and never knew what it was. It's in both breasts but more in the left one. It was 2 weeks before period and my breasts were sore due to that. Anyone know what this is? I'm worried. I am 31.

Re: Breast leakage

Hi Abbey,
I would suggest just checking in with your doctor to make them aware of it. I have avery dark green discharge that comes out of mine, and my GYN told me that I was very fibrocystic (I think that's what she called it?) and that was causing it. I am very lumpy when I do self exams, but they don't seem to be concerned. It is scary for the patient, though. If breast cancer runs in your family, maybe you should talk to your doctor about getting a baseline mammogram if you haven't already. If anyone else out there has a green discharge, please let me know.

Re: Breast leakage

I know when women are pregnant they can leak out of a breast. When i had my son the very first fluids that came out of my breasts was a creamy yellow fluild. Maybe go to the doctor and they'll check your hormone levels. Maybe you have too much of one hormone which is making you produce milk?

Re: Breast leakage

Breast leakage is also common with thyroid disease.

Re: Breast leakage

a doctor told me once that birth control pills can cause a green discharge in some women. If you're on birth control pills it could be that.
