So I was just looking at my breast (right) and barely squeezed my nipple I mean barelllyyyy, and some greenish clear discharge came out. I gave it about 30 minutes, did it again and the same amount came out. It’s only the right side, left is fine. I’m freaking out it’s a breast cancer symptom! Should I go to the gyno?
Help please.

It's oddly normal. Some of the little bumps around your nipple if you squeeze stuff will come out too. Nipples are always lubricated actually. I googled it when it happened to me once years ago. I freaked out like you and learned it normal

But normal to be green and one sided?
I was just at the gyno in January for another issue. I don’t want to keep going and just be off as HA
Also it’s seems to be only coming out of one duct in the nipple and not multiple which I think is bad?
I feel like lately there is always something new for me to worry about being cancer!

Super normal. I'm 40 but my doctor said it'll increase as you get near menopause age as well. It can be clear, green or brown
I'd still ask your doctor about it. I'm not qualified to give medical advice. Just speaking from my own experience

I’m 27, this is the first time anything like this has happened. I’m just worried bc it’s one sided and only from one duct which I’ve heard is not good. Thank you for your replies!
I’m also nervous to see a doctor because if they say oh it’s fine, I’m worried I’ll want to insist on a scan and their words won’t be enough :(

You can also ask your doctor for a scan if it helps relieve your mind. Some people stay away from doctor's for fear of what is wrong. If it concerns you this much then ask for a scan

Have you ever breastfed? I weaned my baby 8 months ago but a little bit of breast milk comes out if I squeeze my nips ‍♀

Hey me too!!!! I get the clear/ dark green from my right and milky white from my left. Had a diagnostic mammogram and they said every looked fine. Still lingers in the back of my head though. With severe anxiety, getting a piece of mind seems impossible. Just have to take it day by day.
