In brief: Not Usually.

Gynecomastia is not usually associated with production of breast milk and/or nipple discharge.
These findings may prompt additional (endocrinology) work up.

In brief: prolactin

If a male patient is having nipple discharge from glandular tissue this may indicate concerning endocrine abnormality.
The hormone prolactin may be elevated due to issues with the pituitary gland. I recommend a thorough endocrinology workup.
