Very Painful Burning Sensation In Right Breast As Well As White Discharge From Nipple

Hi,For the last two weeks or so I have been experiencing a very sharp, searing, burning sensation in my right breast.This "sensation" always occurs in the same place and it burns from near my armpit side towards my lower right side of my right breast.It has been happening more and more frequently lately and has become more intense. When researching the basics on the net, there was an article that mentioned discharge from the nipples, which I also have.I have had a white discharge (only if applying pressure to the nipple) since I was pregnant five years ago.I have tried to do research on the net but have found that it could potentially be so many random things. Much appreciated,Pam

Answer

If your nipple discharge has been the same for five years, you probably do not need to worry about it. Many women have discharge, especially if they press on the nipple. Your burning pain is getting worse, so I think you need to let a doctor check it out. You can read more about causes of breast pain in this article to give you some ideas about possible causes. Many people believe the myth that breast cancer doesn't hurt, but sometimes it does. My breast cancer started with a pain that got gradually worse, progressing to swelling and redness. Most breast pain is not cancer, but do make an appointment to get checked.
