Galactorrhea is a milky nipple discharge unassociated to the normal milk production of breast-feeding. Galactorrhea itself isn't a disease, yet it might be a sign of a hidden problem. Yet galactorrhea can occur in men and even in infants. If you have a relentless, spontaneous milklike nipple discharge from one or both of your breasts and you're breast-feeding or not pregnant, make an appointment to see your medical professional. If breast stimulation, such as too much nipple area control during sexual activity, triggers nipple discharge from multiple ducts, you have little cause for worry. If you have persistent discharge that does not vanish, make a consultation with your medical professional to get it took a look at. Nonmilky nipple discharge, specifically bloody, clear or yellow spontaneous discharge that originates from one duct or is linked with a swelling you can feel, calls for punctual clinical attention, as it might be a sign of a hidden breast cancer.
