Hi all,


A few weeks ago I noticed spontaneous bloody discharge from my right nipple. I got an ultrasound and mammogram, followed by a biopsy for a suspicious growth they found in my right breast under my nipple. Pathology report as follows:

Clinical Information

Spontaneous + Nipple D/C Rt Br on US intraductal (illegible) defect with apparent vascularity at 8:00, 3 x 16G cores with US. ? Papilloma.

Diagnosis

Core biopsy, right breast:

Benign breast changes

I received a phone call from my doctor today who said the biopsy results werepresenting a “mixed picture” with my ultrasound images. I’m being urgently referred to a local breast health clinic.

Has anyone been in a similar situation? I was feeling very positive about the results but now I’m not sure what to expect.

Thanks in advance for any responses, I’m feeling lost and so uncertain about this. I’m still discharging blood every day from my right breast, it sucks.

Jillycat I haven't had this experience with discordant results but it sounds as though your doctor is being thorough and wants a specialist's eyes on your condition. I wouldn't take this necessarily as an ominous sign, just an indication as to how careful your medical team is with you. Hope you get a referral appointment soon and clarification as to what all this means.

Just wanted to post an update. I’m having the growth removed surgically in early July so they can biopsy the mass and because it’s still causing me discomfort. I’m still bleeding from my nipple at least a few drops a day and sometimes my breast is sore. The doctor was really great to meet withand I feel I’m in good hands. I’m mostly nervous about going under general anesthesia and recovering but I’m very glad they’ll be taking it out.
