Nipple discharge

I've had various different types of discharge from my nipples over the last few years. At first I thought it was milk and went to gp, had mammogram etc all fine.

In the last 2yrs I've had an incredibly painful cyst type thing under one nipple- I couldn't bear anything to touch it- had antibiotics or something. Then a few months later similar but not as bad in other side, it went on its own after a few days.

On the side where I had the second cysty thing I can feel a thickening of the tube (?) that runs from the nipple inside the breast. I am currently getting two different sorts of discharge- both only tiny amounts and only if I squeeze. One thick and white, one clearish yellow.

Do I need to see gp or is it just likely to be normal for me/ hormonal? Thanks

Any nipple discharge needs to be checked by a doctor.

I was told nipple discharge is only a problem of its spontaneous. Discharge that comes out only when u squeeze is not as much of a problem unless it's blood. My boobs have been scanned , prodded and squeezed loads over the past couple of years and this is what I was told
