Nipple discharge refers to fluid that seeps out of the nipple in non-lactating women. 80% of nipple discharge is normal.
It could be a normal (physiological) part of the breast’s function if the discharge resolves on its own. Possible causes of discharges include abscess, breast infection, hormone imbalance, fibrocystic breasts, pregnancy, duct ectasia and papillomas.
Discharge may come from one or multiple ducts on the same nipple, and from either one or both breasts. If the discharge persists, please consult your doctor.
