DischargeORsecretion: Nipple secretion is a normal physiologic process; nipple discharge reflects an underlying cause such as a benign tumor, duct inflammation, or even a cancer. Ns is usually bilateral, from multiple ducts, and only when elicited. Nd is usually from one breast, one duct, spontaneous, and most concerning when clear or bloody. "when in doubt, check it out"--make an appointment to see your doctor.
