Hello
First thing to rule out is a lump by palpation and a mammography.Then hyperprolactinoma should also be ruled out by checking prolactin levels.If thats normal,then a swab test of the discharge needs to be done to rule out infection.
Please see your doctor.

My son, who is 22 years old, has a mild thyroid problem, but now he is seeing blood (brown) in his urine that increases with the increase of water he drinks. Can blood in the urine have anything to do with the thyroid problem? I know one of the thyroid drugs cause blood in urine, but he is not on that one, he is on one that starts with "my" I believe.
