Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How can I help you?
User :   Hello, can you see my question?
User :   Are you a GP or what, if I can ask? :)
Doctor :   I am general physician.
User :   I am having a little bit of black blood coming from one nipple. I am postmenopause, 51, and on warfarin. I noticed that there was a darkness to the nipple and when pressed, black blood bubbled up. This has happened three times in the past two weeks.
Doctor :   I believe I can help you within my expertise.
User :   Great, thank you.
Doctor :   Ok
User :   Each time, the total amount of black blood was less than half a teaspoon. Maybe less than a quarter teaspoon.
User :   What's going on?
User :   Most recent mammo about three months ago, everything seemed fine.
Doctor :   Since when have you noticed the blood?
User :   See above, just the past two weeks.
Doctor :   Have you been monitoring the INR levels?
User :   Yes, thank you, I'm in my right range (2.0 to 3.0)
Doctor :   And when was your last INR check up?
User :   The ticker says we have only a moment left, so I will say thank you and shut up now so the rest of the time is yours.
User :   Three weeks ago for last INR
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Presence of blood through the nipple can be due to infections
Doctor :   or due to a malignant transformation
User :   no pain, no heat, no fever
Doctor :   or probably due to the medications that you are on.
