Thanks for your query.

A cyst like swelling on the nipple in your age group with discharge might be suggestive of Paget's diease of nipple.
I would like to know some more details which will help me in suggesting you better:
1.Is there any flaky or scaly skin on the nipple?
2.Is the change you mentioned is present only in one breast?
3.Are the nipples flattened?
4.Is there any crusty, oozing or hardened skin resembling eczema, on the nipple, areola or both?
5.Is there any burning sensations on the nipples or breasts?

Bloody discharge from nipple is not a good sign. You should have a proper examination of your breast and further investigations without delay.

please reply to the above questions which will help me in suggesting you better.
