What is galactorrhea?
Galactorrhea refers to a condition where your nipples secrete a milky fluid that resembles breast milk, except you aren't pregnant or nursing. While this condition may be relatively painless and often benign, there could be serious underlying causes. Galactorrhea happens when your hormones are out of balance and can indicate problems with your thyroid gland. It’s important to note that this condition isn’t limited to just women — men and newborns are also susceptible to it.
