Abstract

Nipple secretion is an important clinical symptom in the context of breast pathology second only, in terms of incidence and diagnostic role, to the presence of a mammary nodule. Its importance derives from its possible association with cancer (from 3% to 47%) of which it may be the earliest sign, even if it is most often in relation to a benign pathology. The authors report their experience from 1988 to the present in 60 cases of mammary secretion out of 1200 patients attending the clinic.
