How is galactorrhea diagnosed?
Doctors usually diagnose galactorrhea with a physical exam and medical history. Your doctor will ask about your lifestyle and any medicines you take.
If needed, two tests can confirm diagnosis:
- Blood tests tell doctors if the levels of prolactin (milk-producing hormone) in the body are abnormally high.
- Imaging tests called CT and MRI scans enable doctors to look for a tumor in or near the pituitary gland.
