Have PCOS and cyst in thyroid. Have white discharge and burning sensation on nipples. Breast cancer?

39 year old Female, have had a hysterectomy 2 years ago along with a bladder lift (still have my ovaries) I have PCOS and have a cyst on my right thyroid, low in vitamin D . I have had white milky discharge since I gave birth 17 years ago that comes and goes. My breast have grown since I had the hysterectomy but they pretty much stay tender to the touch but these last two weeks the nipples feel like they are on fire and have had the white milky discharge. Can this just be my hormones? I am scheduled for a mammogram next month. I have two maternal aunts who have had breast cancer so I m very concerned.

Hi and welcome to HCM.
It sounds more like benign condition but it definitely must be evaluated. Can be caused by hormonal disbalanse, adenomas or mastitis. These are benign disorders. Cancer in your case must be always considered and often tests should be performed even if mamography doesnt show anything.
Wish you good health.
