Tender nipples, painful, blood discharge from nipple. Recommendations?

Last evening I bumped my breast and found that the nipple/areola area was very tender to the touch. SInce then, it has become increasingly painful and is now (about 8 hours later) constantly and more severely painful with or without touch and there is a relatively small but bloody discharge from the nipple. What might this be and what should I do?

Hi,

I would suggest to consult a physician immediately, do mammography and ultrasound of breasts and armpit area to exclude further problems.

Please do not delay, go and see a physician immediately.
