See Your Gyno if Your Breast Does This

Breast discharge, when you are not breastfeeding is considered a medical condition

The color of the discharge does not exactly tell you a diagnosis nor confirm whether it is a serious condition or not.

Check immediately if the discharge is bloody.

Pain in the breast is more serious if it only is in one spot, not from a bruise or a specific trauma, and if it persists.

There are treatments for milk discharge that doesn’t seem to go away, but it may be worth watching and not treating medically.

Your contraception or other medication may be causing this discharge.

There are tests that you should have if you find that you have discharge from one or both of your breasts.

If you have diabetes, sleep problems, or other medical conditions it can lead to problems with the breast as well. So make an appointment at Women’s Health Practice and we can discuss your alternatives.
