Question: Dark green nipple discharge, is this normal?

 elizabeth5239 - Wed Apr 22, 2009 11:47 pm

About three days ago I noticed my right nipple was darker in color than the other, so I checked to see why and a clear dark green fluid came out. It came out of several ducts on the same nipple. I have no pain, but the nipple looks slightly irritated and is sensitive. I'm 22, have never been pregnant, and am not on any birth control. I'm quite concerned. Is this normal? I appreciate any help you can give, thank you :)

This is not normal. Anytime you have discharge from the nipples that is green, I would be concerned.
Have it evaluated please.
