Good morning, thanks for the question

Fluid from the nipple does not always indicate that a lump in the breast that is malignant. For example papilloma, is a benign tumor that can be followed by symptoms of fluid mixed with blood from the nipple. This condition arises when the tumor grows in the milk-producing glands. The condition also requires further evaluation for example by ultrasound examination or biopsy to rule out the possibility of malignancy.

Malignant breast lumps generally have the following characteristics:
1. Solid or hard consistency.
2. The shape can be irregular and feels like it is bound to the chest wall so it cannot be moved during examination.
3. Breast cancer lumps are generally painless in the early stages of the disease. When the size gets bigger or infiltrates the skin, or compresses the surrounding organs it can cause pain complaints.
4. Lumps only occur in one breast.
5. The nipple discharge is persistent.

We recommend that you do further consultation with your doctor to determine the type of lump and possible cause. Additional examinations that may be suggested to help make the diagnosis include breast ultrasound, tissue biopsy, or mammography.

That's all, hope you can help
Wassalam.
