hello my lovelies.
Im 28. Mother of 4.
I have been reading articles and conversations on this site for a while now. First of all i would like to praise all you ladies for being strong and being there for other women going through diagnosis or just diagnosed.
When i was 16 i developed a very itchy rash on my left breast areola. It grew bigger, oozed clear-white discharge and my nipple would discharge the same when squeezed. I dealt with it like how any 16 yr old would. After (let's say 7+) months the rash disappeared along with the symptoms.
Fast foward to April 2017, twelve yrs later, the rash came back, same spot, this time smaller in size and not oozy. The itch was significant. And both nipples discharged clear-white and sometimes yellowish when squeezed..esp the left one. This time my breasts esp the left one are painful. The rash disappeared 2 weeks ago..just when id managed to get an appt. with a BS. I can still squeeze out some diacharge though..but that it if i squeeze it hard.
No palpable lump during physical exam. MAMMO, U/S & MRI showed nothing. Except that the day i had MRI they did another U/S and the report says "BILATERAL REACTIVE APPEARING AXILLARY LYMPH ADENOPATHY".
I had a punch biopsy done today. The Dermatologist though, is treating my case as eczema. Prescribed mosturizing shower cream, cortisone ointment, etc. Which i did not bother to buy. She could not even explain why i have discharge from the nipple. I felt so disappointed and i was an emotional wreck immediately. Im glad she did the biopsy.
Could anyone please share their experience (s). I know symptoms can be individual. How was your journey to diagnosis. What does LYMPH ADENOPATHY mean in my case? I will see tye BS once the biopsy report is out.
