    Hi Brenda - First, please stop squeezing your nipple - it doesn't do anything other than irritate it. The fluid you see can be from any number of causes, chiefly hormonal. The likelihood of this being a breast cancer symptom is remote. Please read our post on nipple discharge for lots of information about whether/when to call a doctor about this. Good luck - PJH

    Brendalind, nipple discharge is common and is usually harmless, especially if it happens only when you squeeze and/or is in both breasts.  This article on nipple discharge will give you the information to help you decide if you need to call the doctor right away or wait until your next regular appointment to mention it.
