Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Thank you for writing to us.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

There are a number of things that can cause one to have blood coming out of the nipple:




Intraductal papilloma which is something harmless and is a small benign tumor.
Duct ectasia in which there is abnormal dilation of the ducts in the breast.
Breast cancer which is something serious and should be ruled out.



Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would strongly suggest that you should visit your doctor for further evaluation of your condition and to rule out anything potentially serious.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
