Nipple discharge

I seem to have nipple discharge.  I notice it on my tshirt when I wake up in the morning, just about everyday.  It shows up yellow on a white tshirt when it is dry.  Sometimes I can squeeze my breast a little and it will come out ( at this point I looks clear).  I also notice it in my bra at times too.  And it is only my left breast.  Any idea?   I did mention it to my OBGYN once but he didn't seem too concerned.  It's been going on for years now.  I am 34, 2 kids (13 and 16)

Hello, mreed93, and welcome to the Women's Health Issues board!

If it were me, I would want to investigate any discharge that is only from one breast and has been going on for years. I recommend you talk to your doctor about it again, and let him know you'd like to find out what is causing the discharge even if he isn't overly concerned about it.

Here are links to a few reliable web sites with more information about nipple discharge:
