Duct Ectasia - Treatments

​The treatment of duct ectasia is largely symptomatic but antibiotics and analgesics may be needed. Supportive management includes:

  • Warm compresses to soothe the painful breast
  • Breast pads to absorb the nipple discharge
  • A good support bra to help minimise breast discomfort
  • Sleeping on the opposite side to help prevent swelling and discomfort to the affected breast
  • Stopping smoking
  • Surgery, which may be considered to excise the affected duct
