could gynecomastia cause nipple discharge?

Yes: Gynecomastia is enlargement of breast tissue in men. It is a noncancerous condition. It can cause nipple discharge, usually clear or yellow. If you are experiencing blood/red or brown discharge, please see your doctor for evaluation.

Possible but: Nipple discharge in a male is not normal . If its fluid or milky it could be galactorrhea, which can be caused by medications, hormone imbalances and even tumors. You should definitely go get checked out. Seek a plastic surgeon for your gynecomastia after you find out what the cause is first for the discharge.
