Brief Answer:
Increased prolactin leven could be the cause

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX Milk secretion at this age is not normal, even a drop from the breast needs to be evaluated. If this secretion is not associated with any pain or swelling in the breast could be due to HYPERPROLACTINAEMIA (increased secretion of Prolactin hormone). It needs simple tests to diagnose it. Initial investigation will be Microscopic examination of breast secretion to confirm it as milk, then a serum prolactin hormone level.
Further investigation if required depends on confirmation of hyperprolactinaemia.
Your treatment depends on these investigations. Kindly get evalutaed by an OBGY specialist.
