I am a male of 50years and of recent I noticed white thick discharge from my breast when pressed. What can be happening to me.

I am a male of 50years and of recent I noticed white thick discharge from my breast when pressed. What can be happening to me.

Breast discharge: Galactorrhea or milk production, is often caused by a high prolactin level or a testosterone deficiency. The thick white tissue debris comes out first. Because there is a 1% chance of breast cancer in males, your physician may also recommend a mammogram, MRI, or U/S to rule that out. Unilateral breast discharge is more worrisome.
