Hi, Anon.

Thank you for posting.

Galactorrhea (guh-lack-toe-REE-uh) is a milky nipple discharge unrelated to the normal milk production of breast-feeding. Galactorrhea itself isn't a disease, but it could be a sign of an underlying problem. It usually occurs in women, even those who have never had children or after menopause. If this was occurring (mostly) without squeezing or stimulation, it should be mentioned to her doctor. Even if just for her peace of mind.
