During a self-breast exam two months ago, I noticed a swollen gland on my areola. It's like a swollen montgomery gland. It consistently produces pus when squeezed. Soft, not painful, but I have a history of family breast cancer. Am I just paranoid?

    No!!! Get checked. It might be a cyst but get it checked since you have a family history.

    Family history or not. Also no matter the age. Anytime you feel something or have changes, you should get it checked out. Better to be safe than sorry. Prayers to you.

    No - family history throw that the window- I found mine in the shower and it leaked for months it felt like the size of a pea or a knuckle . I'm young under forty and the dr said she was not worried but let me have a mammo and I was dx with breast cancer . Earlier you find out the better off you will be this is doing yourself a favor - my doctor didn't find it I did . And I went every year for my exams never missed an appt .
