    Default Never been pregnant but have one sided nipple discharge

    Hi all, im 28 i have never been pregnant and I am now experiency niple discharge from one breast. I have no pain and the discharge is a creamy white/gold consistency. I have PCOS and wa diagnosed when i was 15. Period wise i am very irregular i can go many months without a period. I am finishing a period now and my last one was 2months ago. We are not trying to conceive I am clucky as hell but we are waiting to build our home first. Ive done lots of research but its all very confusing just wondering if anyone else has experiened this? I have seen my GP and she has done a breast examination. The breast with discharge is fine my other breast (no dishcharge) she said has many small lumps. I am booked in for an Ultrasound on both this morning and to give a sample of the discharge. Currently i am on no medication

    Default Original poster

    Today i had my ultrasound done and the sonographer said she couldn't see anything of concern. Got to wait for the report to be completed and go back to my doctor and get the results along with the lab results.. Then see what the next plan of action is.

    There's your answer piercings can cause a discharge exactly like what you described. Speaking from personal experience

    I agree. Basically you get new skin growing through the length of the hole and that skin has to Slough layers of skin to keep healthy. The dead skin comes at as a thick white cheese with mine (ears and nipples) and I haven't had my piercings in for 7 years.

    It's not thick discharge and it's not coming from the piercing site. I have many piercings and know without proper and often cleaning they tend the get quite smelly. My nipple piercing isn't smelly lol, isn't coming from the piercing Site, looks healthy, is clean, isn't a thick discharge. It's all very confusing. I'm going to see my doctor for the cytology results next week. So I will let everyeveryon know how I go.

    @Teegyz my SIL had this same issue. She had a benign tumor on her pituitary glad. She now takes medication to shrink it. Not saying that's what it is for you, but she went through all the "breast tests" and they found nothing wrong - it wasn't until she went to specialist and they sent her for an MRI that they found the cause. So, if they don't find anything, maybe ask whether this is a possibility.

    @HillDweller

    Thank you i have read about ladies having high prolactin levels which can be from a pituitary tumour. I guess when I go back to my doctor I will ask for a blood test. We don't have an MRI machine in the hospital where i live the closest is over 500km away. *sigh* . I'm sure that a CT machine will be enough though. My doctor was talking about referring me to the breast clinic to see a specialist which is also over 500kms away. Just got to stay positive.

    I was wondering if maybe it was just a hormonal thing as it started just before my period but now I have finished and I still have the discharge.

    Ah bummer on the distance thing. Hopefully there's a simple explanation! (and simple fix!)
