Milky discharge from nipples is called galactorrhea. It is not the milk production during breast feeding. It is a sign of an underlying disease. Sometimes the symptom goes on its own.
Most often its occurrence is seen in women, but can also occur in men and in infants.
It can be a result of excessive breast stimulation, side effects of medicines, pituitary gland disorder or increased level of hormone prolactin.
