Suggest treatment for a lump in the nipple

Hi a small lump keeps growing on my nipple. It doesn t have a white head but is white and the colour contrasts from the rest of my breast. I have squeezed it and it doesn t burst. It is sometimes a little sensitive. It lasts weeks and then seems to burst on its own. I then squeeze the spot and this thick white odourless stuff comes out not quite pus as it is not liquid and then it is followed by blood. This has happened 3/4 times in the same place on my nipple. Should i see a doctor?

Hello and welcome to HCM,
A lump on the nipple filled with white odorless material can be a skin lesion like a white head.
Lumps on nipple can be due to lesions like papilloma, polyp, soft tissue swelling, etc.
A clinical assessment of the lesion is required.
An aspiration and excision of the lesion may be required to know the exact nature of the lesion.
Thus, consult your primary healthcare provider for clinical assessment, relevant investigations and thus management.

Thanks and take care
