Is defiantly got blood I it all my t shirts keep getting little dots of blood where it keeps leaking I am scared out me wits has anyone ever experienced this as well or know of anyone many thanks

I haven't but know someone who did it turned out to be fine. I have health anxiety not only with me but I think bad things with my children other family members etc. i drive everyone mad. when you get checked out you will feel better good luck. let me know how you get on.


Hi 😊

I understand your anxiety, having found a breast lump myself last year.

As you probably know there are other likely causes for the discharge other

than cancer. It doesn't exactly give peace of mind to know this but it does

show we shouldn't always presume the worst.

I actually recall my mother having a similar symptom, investigation showed

it was caused by a blocked milk duct, she was in her 50s at the time.

Best wishes 😊 xB
