Hello,

Black/green discharge from the nipple is suggestive of duct ectasia, that is dilatation of the duct which occurs with increasing age. However you need to be evaluated by a breast surgeon to rule out other conditions including malignancy.

well black or darker discharge could be due to benign conditions like mammary duct ectasia or ductitis or could be even malignant.
hence i think you should resort to the cancer surgeon. get the discharge cytology and mammogram and manual examination

Hello and welcome to healthcare magic.
Watery discharge from the nipple or areaola is an indication of some pathology like
infection or could be more serious. Better to have an expert examination for any underlying lumps and ultimately a mammogram. Depending upon these results, please come back to us for further consultation. Many thanks

Appears to be a case of Mastitis. Please go to your doctor he may prescribe you antibacterial medication. With spirit or other agents, keep the areola clean and dry.
