I'm 19 years old, female. I've been treated with early endometriosis since 2 years. I'm on a hormonal pill-novelon due to this. For quite a few months i've been experiencing a pain in my breasts. It happened quite often and I had been prescribed a medicine- codesoft, for which I get momentary relief from these pains, which mainly happens before or after my periods. A few days ago, I noticed a tiny reddish speck on my inner, on checking, I found I had a tiny boil or ulcer like formation way above my nipple area, on my left breast. I checked for lumps or any unusual changes, there were none. My nipple looked normal to me. The next day my inner had a surface of yellow discharge with a reddish speck. I'm not able to make out if it's from my nipple or not. I do have the occasional breast pains as well. Is there any possibility of these symptoms being that of breast cancer? My grandmother (father's mom) had breast cancer, my mother or aunts don't have it.

Your second degree had breast cancer. You need to follow-up with breast sono mammogram every 6 months at this age. The regular mammogram is adviced only after 40 yrs. You are suffering from fibroadenosis of both breast. Do confirm your breast scan reports and chat with me.
It is not cancer. Rest assured about that but since your grandmother had breast cancer, you should not ignore it either. If you could contact me, we can discuss in detail and initiate treatment.
