In brief: Nipple Secretion

When evaluating a woman with nipple fluid, our first priority is to differentiate secretion from discharge.
The former is a physiologic process, often emanating from multiple ducts in both breasts &usually elicited; discharge is spontaneous, unilateral, and often clear-to-bloody. While your situation does not sound worrisome, it would be best to see a breast surgeon to sort this out.

In brief: Cyst?

This is often cyst fluid, but needs to be checked, make an appt with your doctor, or ob/gyn.
Often breast cyst discharge is described a "machinery oil". It is most often nothing to worry about, but the only way to tell is to make that appointment! don't worry, make sure!
