Bleeding in left breast

for 19+ years i have been producing breast milk. also accompanied by pain and multible cycts and tumors. i've finailly had a breast biopsy on oct.9,2009 and the test was normal. {they say} now my left nipple is bleeding out. there is not alot of blood but the burning and pain are unbearable. my doctor recently tested the blood in a tube for a lab test and that came back normal. how is that? i had also just had all my female organs removed due to endametrious (chronic) left neglected for years. i have had hep c was on treatment for 1yr. and 1/2 (hep c is now in remission) now i developed hep b and my doctor thinks this is a cause for my breast problems. i have been looking for answers for years now. all my hormones were and are normal they say. i have a putarity tumor microadoma they again claim is not the cause. shall i just sit back and die or keep spending unneccary $$$$$$ amounts on bullshit. i know my body and i know there is something not right.

I had/have same problem. 5 years ago microprolactinoma diagnosed... as part of enquiries they checked breasts... did biopsy and found fibroadenoma/benign (some websites say this is overgrowth of milk producing fibres, which would be explicable). After biopsy right breast bled, then stopped. 3 years later stopped dostinex to see if prolactinoma resolved... breast bled again about a month later. Re-started Dostinex and it stopped. Recently took POP for 5 days. Almost immediately started again... stopped pill and it looks to have stopped, given just reasonable pressure anyway, and certainly produces nothing during the night. Trouble is surgeon is talking of duct removal for papilomas etc. etc. and given the history of the above I am not sure... Are there any surgeons with a whole body approach to these things???

Since the biopsy is normal, it is not of concern as such.

I had same problem, pituitary prolactinoma. 5 years ago was milky, had biopsy in right breast - fibroadenoma/benign - some websites say this is an overgrowth of milk producing tissue, which would make sense. It bled a little from the nipple after this and then stopped. No recurrence of any problem until stopped dostinex to check if prolactinoma had "gone", then it bled again, not profusely. Started Dostinex again.. no probs for 1.5 years. Then took progesterone only pill for 5 days... it started again. Stopped pill and it has since stopped. Haven't squeezed it very hard to check but normal 'squeezing' produces nothing. Surgeon is talking of removing ducts and all sorts but I think I need more convincing because of the coincidences above...
