A friend has had a thyroidectomy and now is experiencing black discharge from her breasts.  Could this be a pituitary problem or tumor?

Hi,
Nipple discharge could be a benign condition caused by hormonal imbalance, inflamed ducts,fibrocystic breast changes or some medication your friend might be taking.
However,some nipple discharge could also be caused by Pituitary gland tumors,but this condition should be evaluated by a medical professional to know for sure if this is your friend's problem.
All the best to you and your friend.
