Hi all
I had a question for bf mamas, I have been bf my DD for almost two years we just weaned about 4 months ago and i have since felt a lump in my left nipple very tiny like a pebble ( could have always been there i never noticed it before, I only checked because my mom just had a papaloma removed from her nipple about two months ago which turned out to a non invasive cancer so that prompted me to probe my nipple, which i really have never done, my left nipple is flat compared to my right nipple, i always chalked that up to as why my DD would refuse the left breast.

anyhow i thought i was pg this past month due to the fact that i had a little yellow discharge from that breast but i also had some discharge from my right breast but that was white i assume milk is still producing from that side, anyhow my DD never really nursed much from the left side(side i felt lump) so now i am a little worried, i have my gyn check up in oct, i may go sooner then that, but I was wondering if any of you ever had a little lump in the nipple and it turned out to be nothing.

since i had the discharge from that nipple the lump is smaller, I am wondering if it is a little milk duct maybe clogged seems like my breast starting hurting after i started messing with it now the breast is starting to feel better, it has been about two weeks now, and my period has started 6 days ago.

Now this breast hasnt really been nursed on for almost a year, my DD refused it, so i am not sure if milk would even be producing in it, just because i was still nursing on the right side.

any advice.

I had a little pebble lump in my left breast while pregnant...the same side that has been biopsied twice under suspicion of paget's. it was a tiny hard lump. anyways, I had an ultrasound of it and it turned out to be a cyst...nothing serious at all. if I were you I might try to get in before October just to put your mind at ease
