Hello doctor,


I am a 23-year-old female with white nipple discharge on squeezing for the past week. Is it a cause for concern?

White nipple discharge is often normal, especially during the reproductive years. It is common during pregnancy and breastfeeding due to hormonal changes. However, it is always advisable to seek a specialist advice for a thorough physical examination. Depending on the findings, they may suggest further tests, such as measuring prolactin levels through a blood test, if needed. A healthcare professional will provide accurate diagnosis and guidance based on your specific situation.
