Suggest remedy for lumps in nipple

I am a 27 year old male. I noticed two days ago that I had a slightly painful lump about half the size of a penny to the right of my right nipple. This morning I wake up and squeezed it and some dark green/ yellow liquid came out of the areola. Is this something that will go away on its own? When should I see a physician?

Hello! Welcome to HCM.
Painful lump with discharge indicates presence of infection.
You haven't mentioned about fever.
This usually needs to be treated with antibiotics & drainage of pus if any.
This won't resolve on its own.
FNAC - fine needle aspiration cytology is advisable for diagnosis.
Hope this helps.
Wish you speedy recovery.
Thanks.
Regards.
