Brief Answer:
Needs further evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I understand your concern. Any breast discharge needs further evaluation. After an initial examination, your doctor will order a lab analysis of the discharge, blood tests, and a mammogram or ultrasound or both. Without these tests it is hard to distinguish between a normal and abnormal discharge.

I hope this answers your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Best wishes.
