A very common benign condition of middle-aged breasts

As the breast involutes ducts get shorter, and consequently wider. Some degree of this duct ectasia is found in essentially every woman of middle age and beyond. In some there is lumpiness, and this with the characteristic green discharge may require special investigations to differentiate from cancer.
