Has anyone experienced green colored drainage after having a lump removed? I had a benign lump removed 6 years ago and I'm going in tomorrow to have a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound, then a biopsy.

    Hi Stacie, I haven't it but being curious about this I looked it up. Besides the obvious awful things we all fear, it could be mammary duct ectasia, a benign condition. It happens to women in their 40's & 50's. You doctor is being pro-active to refer you for a mammogram and ultrasound. Please keep us posted....prayers and positive thoughts for a benign report. Take care, Sharon

    Hi Stacie. I have had the green drainage off and on since I was 22. I have always been fibrous and dense in my tissue. I am now 49. After my hysterectomy the green drainage returned. The doctor tested it and it was fine. Now several years later I have been diagnosed with breast cancer. I do not think it has anything to do with the green drainage, but until they said breast cancer I did not know drainage was or could be a symptom. Again, I do not think one has to do with the other. Best of luck. You'll be in my prayers.
