Hello. welcome to HCM.
Blood stained discahrge from the nipple is commonly due to duct ectasia and uncommonly due to malignancy. make sure she does not have any lump or eczema in the breast. In any case, you have to get a physical examination by experienced doctor/ surgeon.
Duct ectasias may respond to medical treatment, but usually need surgery.
Take care
