Hi,

A nipple discharge is significant and needs to be investigated further if it -
- is persistent,
- comes out without squeezing the breasts or any stimulation,
- is bloody or foul smelling or altered,
- is associated with a lump, nipple or skin changes etc.

Because of the significant past history it is important that you schedule an appointment with your doctor and see if the discharge needs to be sent for lab analysis to rule out infection and also if any investigations are required.

Do let us know if you have any more doubts and keep us posted on how you are doing.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.
