Nipple discharge
or swollen lymph nodes need not necessarily mean you have signs of breast cancer, or any other sort of cancer. Other symptoms need to be considered before ruling out any routine or minor health issue. If in doubt, have a chat to a medical professional. I always find that talking to professional people and doing some of my own research on any matter, helps me feel informed and in control, which is very empowering.
