I Have Inverted Nipples And A White Discharge From Both Of Them That Has A Strong Odor To It..what Does This Mean?

Answer

Barbie, since this is happening in both breasts (correct?), it would be highly unusual for it to be a sign of breast cancer. Please read our post on nipple discharge, for information on what might be causing this; and our post on nipple issues. Bottom line, this is probably either hormonal, or some kind of allergy or infection. Without you seeing a doctor, however, there's no way to tell for sure what's causing these symptoms. I'd suggest you call and make an appointment ASAP; action trumps worry any day, and the only way you'll move forward towards a diagnosis and possible treatment is to see a doctor. Good luck - PJH
