What is the prognosis (outlook) for people with galactorrhea?

Galactorrhea often goes away without treatment. Avoiding the causes of the condition is the best way to keep it from occurring.

If a pituitary tumor causes galactorrhea, your doctor may want you to have a yearly CT or MRI to look for signs of growth.
