Greenish Nipple Discharge

 

 

 

Nipple discharge is a common problem with which ladies present to our Breast Clinic. Nipple discharge can be of many types ranging from clear fluid to frank blood.

Greenish nipple discharge is commonly seen in ladies between the ages of 40-55 years. It is common in ladies who smoke and those are suffering from diabetes.

Breast Cancer should be ruled out in all these patients by doing a triple assessment, i.e. clinical examination, imaging & biopsy. Once cancer has been ruled out, patient should be re-assured and if there is any inflammation, antibiotics can be given. In case of persistent discharge and a lump, the implicated ducts can be surgically removed.
