Clear breast discharge that led to sono

I feel so stupid. After 3 years, I weaned my son but having had oversupply and overactive let down, I never worried that my breasts continued to drip very slightly, even when it became clear and only one side. This went on for at least a year before I read a pamphlet that alarmed me. Unilateral, spontaneous, clear discharge is a sign of cancer!!! I made an appointment for the next day to see a Gyn. Manual palpation told the Dr that my tissue is too lumpy bumpy to tell lumps apart. I asked her if she thought it was cancer and she only said, "I hope not". I have a 3d mammogram and sono and I'm waiting for my appointment on the 6th of July for results, all the same day as the tests. I had a clean mammogram 6 months ago but they also said my extremely dense tissue made it very hard to read. The scheduler called my case "unique" and tried to set up my tests asap.

I'm so very scared. I have a terrible feeling about this and I can't eat or sleep.

    Are you in the U.S? If so, your results should be available on your online health portal.

    There are hundreds of things that can be signs of cancer that, in the vast majority of cases, turn out not to be.

    I'm so sorry. I'm so nervous I can't even speak straight. I mean I have a 3d mammogram and sono and will get results on the 6th. I'll fix it above. I'm sorry

    barelyholdingon, we're sorry you are here and worried about your breast health. We know sometimes those symptoms can be scary, but as alicebastable says, most breast changes are benign, or non-cancerous. See details on types of benign breast conditions here:

    We hope this helps ease your mind while you wait for your results. Please, come back to let us know!
