Dear Silvia, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!

Problem you describe is quite common though a galactocoele should be ruled out. In fact, even years after stoppage of lactation, milk discharge can occur. Please self-examination to see if there is a lump. You may also consult a general surgeon.
Wishing you best of health
