Nipple discharge



About the condition

Nipple discharge refers to fluid that seeps out of the nipple in non-lactating women. 80% of nipple discharge is normal.


Causes of the condition

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.


Signs & symptoms

Discharge may be from one or both breast, and one duct or multiple ducts form the same nipple. If the discharge persists, please consult your doctor.
