I Noticed A Singular Very Small Drop Of Fluid On My Right Nipple. This Has Never Happened Before. Its Color And Consistency Was Like Egg Whites. Should I Worry About Something So Small And Isolated?

both got slightly moist when I squeezed them right after that and there is none today. I have a harmless cyst in that breast and I'm on day 4 of my cycle. there is no pain associated with the discharge.

Answer

Hi - Nipple discharge like this is almost always hormonal. Very rarely is nipple discharge a sign of breast cancer; and then, seldom discharge such as you describe. Please read our post on nipple discharge for good information on whether/when to see a doctor about this, OK? Cheers - PJH
