What is the cause of nipple discharge?

I have just noticed I can hand expess a little amount of breast fluid from one of my nipples. I finished breast feeding 3 years ago. Could this mean I'm pregnant or is it possible to still be able to hand express and get a tiny bit out after this long without breast feeding ??

Hello,

There is nothing much to worry about this condition , do a thyroid profile test and a prolactin test for this , ultrasound examination of both breast may be required.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
