Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Nipple discharge is a common breast symptom that warrants evaluation. Although most discharges are due to benign conditions, discharge may be due to an underlying malignancy. This chapter reviews the potential etiologies of nipple discharge and the appropriate workup, including the role of ductography, ductoscopy, and magnetic resonance imaging. Algorithms for workup and management of nipple discharge are presented. The technique of duct excision is outlined. This chapter also examines the significance of nipple secretions with respect to breast cancer risk and the technology for obtaining nipple secretions for cytologic examination for risk assessment.
