Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

According to the Mayo Clinic, mammary duct ectasia occurs when a milk duct beneath the nipple becomes wider (dilated) and filled with fluid. ... Mammary duct ectasia usually causes no signs or symptoms, but some women may have nipple discharge, breast tenderness or inflammation of the clogged duct.

Anon, a clogged duct can be very painful - so your symptoms are pretty typical of that. Your ultrasound showed the clogged duct but not a potentially cancerous lump.

You may have too much of the hormone prolactin and the cabgolin tablets may reduce this so give it a try.

We cannot offer other solutions as we are not doctors who can treat you. Give the cabgolin a try and see what happens. I hope this clears up for you soon.
