Galactorrhea: Hello Mary,
When a lady can express a watery milky fluid from her nipples, this is called galactorrhea . This type of fluid does not cause me to think of anything dangerous but I do have concerns that the pituitary gland may be producing too much of one of it's hormones. Consult your physician for additional hormonal testing.
