Five years ago I had the same discharge. Also my right breast had the same sensation of breast feeding and I even had dreams that I was a nursing mom again. I went for a mammogram and they had to do further testing - the result Stage 3 HER2 positive breast cancer. Thank God it was found as if it went any further the results would not have been so good. I opted for a bilaterally mastectomy. I had 6 rounds of chemo along with 18 treatments of Herceptin. I would say it is worth having an MRI to rule out breast cancer. Better to be proactive than reactive.

Hello Anonymous,
Normal nipple discharge more commonly occurs in both nipples and is often secreted when the nipples are compressed or squeezed.

Try leaving the nipples alone for a while, don't squeeze, and see if the condition improves on its own. If not, you need to be examined by your physician to rule out a serious problem.
