Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for coming to us for advice on your health concern.

While nipple discharge can be serious, in most cases, it's either normal or due to a minor condition.

Normal nipple discharge more commonly occurs in both nipples. The discharge is often released when the nipples are compressed or squeezed. Some women who are concerned about breast secretions may actually cause it to worsen. They do this by repeatedly squeezing their nipples to check for nipple discharge. In these instances, leaving the nipples alone for a while may help the condition to improve.

Anonymous, are you having any other symptoms? When was the last time you had a breast examination by a physician?

Schedule an appointment. Based on your medical evaluation, your doctor will determine whether your nipple discharge is normal or abnormal.

Please keep us updated.
