What is galactorrhea?
Galactorrhea (say: "gal-act-tor-ee-ah") is a condition that occurs when one or both breasts make milk (or a milky discharge). The breasts may leak only when the breasts are touched or with no stimulation. It can occur in women or in men, but is less common in men. A woman who has galactorrhea produces milk even though she is not breastfeeding a baby.
