Lumpectomy after bloody discharge


hi all. im looking for anyone to shed light on my risk with the following. im 41. two years ago i had a lumpectomy for what turned out to be a fibroadenoma. just had another surgery to remove a duct that was seen to be dilated with a lesion on ultrasound. i had bloody nipple discharge with this. my pathology reports showed no malignancy, no dcis, no obvious atypia. do any of the words: focal epitheliosis, macrophages, red blood cells, apocrine blebbing, cystic change, mean any risk? thanks in advance. good wishes to all.
