What does pus coming out of nipple mean?

Postby bercnan » Thu Nov 08, 2012 2:16 pm

O.k. I know this is an odd question but I'm kind of nervous...
About a week ago I just got out of the shower and pus came put of my nipple not a lot justva little bit like when a pimple pops, you know? Well this week right next to my nipple I got a big pink pimple! And it hurts and its big!
Does this have any connection to breast cancer???
I know I need to go tovthe doctors idk why I'm asking on here but maybe someone had the samething and could tell me what it is??

No this does not sound like cancer. You might have a cyst in your breast which can cause some pus and will eventually form a pimple. Regardless its worth going to the doctor to get it checked. But I really don't think you have cancer so don't worry.

You can get pimples on any skin. Even the skin of your nipples.

Sounds more like an infection (includes pimples) than cancer.
