Hi Anon

Thanks for your question! 

Breast discharge is also known as galactorrhea and there can be many causes. The pituitary gland is often the culprit. 

Other causes of galactorrhea include:

  • Hormonal imbalance, such as hypothyroidism
  • Some medicines, such as:
    • Stopping or starting to take birth control pills or other hormones
    • Blood pressure drugs
    • Tricyclic antidepressants
    • Tranquilizers (antipsychotics)
    • Antinausea drugs
    • Some antigastroesophageal reflux medicines
    • Some pain killers
  • Certain herbs, including:
  • Illicit drugs, such as:
    • Marijuana
    • Opiates
  • Sexual stimulation of the breast
  • Certain diseases, including:
  • Chronic emotional stress
  • Hypothalamic tumors or disease (eg, tuberculosis )
  • Chest wall conditions, such as:
    • Shingles
    • Trauma
    • Burns
    • Surgical scars
    • Tumors of chest wall   

I think it's a good idea to see your doctor to determine the root cause of this. 

Will you keep us posted?
