What is Galactorrhea?

Description of the disease

Galactorrhea is a condition in which a woman or man produces breast milk without the associated physiological process, such as pregnancy or breastfeeding.


  • Physiological galactorrhea
  • Pathological galactorrhea


Symptoms of galactorrhea may include the discharge of milk from the nipples, often unilateral, in the absence of pregnancy or breastfeeding, as well as changes in the menstrual cycle and hyperprolactinemia.


The causes of galactorrhea can be diverse, including hormonal disorders, trauma, medication, tumors, and other pathologies.


Various tests may be performed to determine the cause of galactorrhea, such as prolactin level analysis, hormonal tests, diagnostic mammography, and others.


The treatment of galactorrhea depends on its cause and may include treatment of the underlying condition, discontinuation of medications causing galactorrhea, or the use of drugs to correct hormone levels.


Prevention of galactorrhea is related to preventing underlying causes, such as avoiding trauma, proper use of medications, and regular monitoring of hormonal status.


If galactorrhea is suspected, it is important to consult an endocrinologist or gynecologist.
