Brief Answer:
need a little clarification

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing to HCM.

Frontal lobe is a part of brain. So I guess, you meant to say that a surgery was done on your brain and now the breast nipple is discharging pink fluid.

The two conditions seems unrelated. At your age any blood like discharge can be coming from a malignancy. Though intraductal papilloma is more commonly known to cause blood like discharge. You will need to be examined by a surgeon and mammogram needs to be done to rule out breast conditions. Further tests can be prescribed according to the examination and mammogram findings.

But first you need to visit your surgeon again for a clinical examination for confirmation.

Hope, I have been helpful.
