Suffering from energy loss, severe pain in breast, purple discharge from nipple, no lump in breast.Is it cancer?

My wife is suffering from energy loss, attacks of severe pain (like electrical shocks, but lingering) in her breast (especially when physically disturbed), occasional purple discharge from her nipple , and she is always colder than everyone else in the room. Currently, there are no discernible lumps in her breast. We have had a thermography scan, and are waiting to see the doctor. We re not trying to hide the fact that it could be cancer, but what else might it be?

Your wife's symptoms points towards some endocrine problem. Possibly Hypothyroidism. She nneds a thyroid profile and treatment accordingly. Regarding her breast discharge it may be cancerous or non cancerous. She may need a mammogram along with a cytology of the nipple discharge to rule out cancer.
