Many women have some type of nipple discharge or fluid when their breasts are squeezed, and its normal. Squeezing the nipple sends message to the brain and the pituitary gland responds by increasing prolactin levels, which in turn produces discharge from the nipple.

I AM 26 AND HAVE ALOUT OF DISCHARGE COMING FROM MY RIGHT BREAST , I THINK I HAVE NOT DRIED UP AFTER HAVING MY SON WHOS 18 MONTHS IS THIS NORMAL WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Hi. I'm 16 years old and have noticed over the past few months a discharge from my breast. But it is very strange. It is not nipple discharge, it comes from my BREAST. It is on my right breast. There is a small hole, like a pin in size, and if i squeeze my breast a brown liquid would discharge from it. It never hurt before so i never worried. But only today i woke up and my right boob was extremely sore round the nipple rea, by the hole. I squeezed my breast and a fairish amount of yellow liquid came out. I have not noticed any lumps before but i'm really worried as what it might be. Please help because i do not want to go to the doctors till i have some idea what it is, although this sounds stupid.
