    Hi - Since you have obvious signs that something is wrong, between the rash and the discharge, you should go to a doctor. You may have an infection starting, and you don't want it to get worse. So call the doctor Monday, OK? Or go in tomorrow if it gets a lot worse overnight. Good luck - PJH

      Hi - At 12 years old, you're NOT dying of breast cancer. It sounds like you have an infection. Please tell an adult - you need to get this treated ASAP, OK? No sense sitting around worrying when ACTION can get you some relief. So be brave - tell someone - get some help. Good luck - PJH

      Sorry, I'm not going to tell you not to tell anyone... The risk is that you get a serious infeciton and get very sick. An infection with pus coming out of it, on your breast, is not something you should treat yourself. You need to tell someone. Please. PJH

      Mary, it's entirely within your rights and responsibilities as a patient to ask for further diagnostic testing, if you're not comfortable with what the doctors have told you so far. You must have symptoms that suggest the infection isn't gone - so advocate for yourself, OK? Go back to the doctor and share these symptoms with him/her, and ask what the next steps should be. I assume your nipples have always been inverted; but if this is a new issue, then ask for a mammogram to see what might be causing this change, as well. Good luck - PJH
