Thank you for your query.

Any blood discharge from the nipples at your age should not be ignored. You have rightly got your mammogram and ultrasound done which confirms a cyst. Kindly discuss with your doctor who will certainly advice you to get it biopsied which is the final confirmatory test to know the exact cause.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing you all the best.

Hi, first thing required is the diagnosis, it may be secondary metastatic grouth from a distant organ, or there may be an abscess in the breast, which burst in side the breast. I to my patient with such symptoms prescribe antibiotic, and protiolytic, and styptics.
I advise you to consult a cancer specialist with all facilities for investigations, you may need to have biopsy of the small lump behind the nipple.
Thank you.
