In brief: Don't touch
Have a fasting prolactin and your thyroid tested.
If normal do not stimulate the breast by checking to see if the discharge has resolved. Most galactorrhea will stop on its own. If the prolactin is significantly elevated a work up for a pituitary adenoma will be needed. Your gynecologist should be able to order the work up.

In brief: Depending on cause
Galactorrhea has to be first evaluated thoroughly to diagnose the underlying cause.
Once identified, your doctor may target their treatment to that cause. In most cases, medical treatment is adequate and in some cases surgical treatment may be necessary.
