green discharge in both breasts

I am 42 yaers old.I have three children ages 23,19 and 7.
After the birth of my seven year old(I was 34 years old)
The discharge from both my breasts have never stopped.
I have had a mammogram,normal,
breast ultra sound,normal
prolactin test,normal
thyroid tests,normal,ct of my pituitory ,normal.
I dont take any medications and I am not on birth control.
I am also negative for galactorrea.
I am being watched with some ovary type growth going on.
I also have a thyroid goiter .
I have been told this dark green discharge could be nothing.
All my tests are normal according to my md and geno.
Is this true??
I am worried if I go with this advice my heath could be at risk.
Thank you so much for your time
Debbie
