Nipple discharge can be quite frightening and discomforting to the patient. There are a variety of causes responsible for abnormal nipple discharge and hence that can cause misdiagnosis. If the discharge occurs from the surface of the nipple it may be due to conditions like Paget's diseases, psoriasis and eczema.
Discharge through the nipple if blood stained maybe due to Duct ectasia, Intraductal papilloma and Intraductal carcinoma
If purulent it can be due to infectious abscess
if serous (watery in consistency) due to Fibrocystic disease, Duct ectasia and Carcinoma
All the above conditions must be ruled out in ordered to come to the apt diagnosis and prevent misdiagnosis.
