Thank you for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com
Relax, at 23, with no palpable mass and no family history, you are NOT having breast cancer.
Your mother is right.
This sounds like mild hormonal imbalance, which leads to high levels of prolactin in the body, leading to breast discharge in young females.
This is generally quite harmless and easily remedied with medication.
Please consult your gynecologist and get this diagnosis confirmed.
Also, have a thorough professional breast exam, which will reassure you.
Get the following levels measured - FSH, LH, TSH, Prolactin.
This should yield the reason for the discharge.
Stress, anxiety, weight changes, late nights, erratic eating, travelling - all this can precipitate such hormonal imbalance.
Please do not worry.
You are not having any feature of breast cancer, or anything remotely ominous.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further.

Thank you for the reply, but will This effect my chances of having children in the future? Even though I have a regular period?
This is a mild hormonal disturbance, and in no way can affect your fertility.
Once you have the workup though, do revert, so that I can opine definitely.
