Wifes nipples are bleeding, both of them from time to time. Whats the likelihood of the "big C"?

Asked by Sandydog (1263points) March 10th, 2010 from iPhone

As said in question there has been some bleeding on and off for about a month in both of them. She now has an appointment for a scan and possible biopsy next week. I read in one Googled article that if both have bled then cancer is unlikely – is this giving false hope that its not serious? Dont know what to think now?

I would wait to see what the doctor says.

I don’t want to alarm you but yes the possibility of the big c is certainly there.

If she does not have a family history of it, I would say that since it happens in both, that the big C is unlikely.

Were you wrangling them a bit too much?
Being in the BDSM lifestyle. You would be surprised what goes on with and to people.

No disrespect intended.

Sometimes there is truth in humor. And a spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down easier.

You are going to see a doctor and that is always the best thing to do.

My general understanding is that if something is happening unevenly, it is more of a concern. Hope all is well.

When there is bloody nipple discharge, the overall risk of cancer as a cause is 5–15%. Nipple discharge from cancer is usually one breast only, although it’s possible for cancer to be diagnosed in both breasts.

We usually do a hands-on clinical exam, then diagnostic mammogram and breast ultrasound, and sometimes a ductogram where they instill contrast medium into the ducts and take pictures. It can help pinpoint where the bleeding is originating.

Doctor, doctor, doctor… get them checked but we are in winter and other body parts can get dry and crack- do she moisturize them?

but getting checked can help you know whats going on. Good luck!

well , since they’re in both and not just one, I’d have less of a concern. Good Luck to You
