Galactorrhea – Abnormal Milky Discharge of the Nipple

Abnormal Milky Discharge of the nipple

Galactorrhea – Abnormal Milky Discharge of the nipple – often results from too much prolactin — the hormone responsible for milk production (lactation) when you have a baby. Prolactin is produced by your pituitary gland, a marble-sized gland at the base of your brain that secretes and regulates several hormones.


The term usually refers to milk secretion not due to breast-feeding. It is bilateral and from multiple ducts. The milk volume may be large or small, and milk may be secreted spontaneously or expressed.
