Am 34 with a six year old daughter. I have clear white discharge from my right breast when I squeeze. I squeeze because I have very sharp pain from that breast to my back. It's been on for like 3 yrs now but is getting worse. What is the cause and what do I do as my doctor hasn't helped.

Brief Answer: Refer to surgeon Detailed Answer: I would recommend that you consider seeing a surgeon who specializes in breast issues. It would be beneficial for you to see this individual physician. He can send some of the fluid for analysis by a pathologist. If the fluid is normal he might be able to perform a small procedure which will alleviate the discomfort. Thanks again for sending your question. Please let me know if you have any additional specific concerns. Dr. Galamaga
