Nipple discharge exam (nipple smear)

If fluid is coming from your nipple and staining sheets or underwear, some of the fluid may be collected and looked at under a microscope for signs of infection or cancer cells. This is often not a good way to find cancer, because cancer can be present even if no cancer cells are found in the fluid.
