?milk?: You say you are 16 but your id on healthtap says you are 37 and a woman. Assuming you are a 16 year old woman and have not recently been pregnant, having a milky discharge from your nipple might signal that you have a pituitary tumor, leading to a high blood level of the hormone prolactin. See your doctor about this.
