Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Discharge from the nipple could have numerous causes, commonly duct ectasia. Since Breast cancer runs in your family, you may get a mammography/biopsy done to confirm according to your Surgeon's advise. Kindly list the drugs you are taking presently as some drugs cause milk secretion as a complication.
