Nipple Discharge

  • Constantine V. Godellas

Abstract

Almost all women, at some point in their life, will have nipple discharge. The most common reason for this is lactation secondary to pregnancy. Some women may get nipple discharge with vigorous stimulation or squeezing of the breast and nipple. These two instances are normal, physiologic events, and require no further workup. It is the woman who presents with spontaneous nipple discharge, unrelated to pregnancy, that is the focus of this chapter.
