Discharge from breast
At first I thought it was just my breast infected, I keep squeezing fluid like which is red like blood mixed in. I feel a lump but I think it is fluid that still needs to come out. It is near the bottom of my breast not the nipple like it it is a pimple or something. Should I be worried about this
It is unclear from your question if the fluid is coming form the nipple or from a lump on the skin of the breast. Either way if you feel a lump in your breast or if you notice any blood stained fluid from your nipple, you must seek attention immediately. You should contact your family doctor and ask him or her to examine you. This is the safest solution to your problem.
