    I can't say I know much about this one (will need to do some research).

    It strikes me as something that would have to be indicative of a health issue (like too high of estrogen/too low of testerone levels).

    So, I guess to put it really simplistically my view at this point would be - "icky." :confused:

    It's a natural occurrence. Men have mammary glands just like women do, just not as well developed.

    It may be natural but that doesn't mean it's healthy. Sporadic lactation in males or females isn't a good thing.

    Well most often it is caused by medication however it can be done after a good amount of stimulation. Basically it's perfectly fine in some cases and a bad sign of something in others.

    Milk production is stimulated by the pituitary hormone called prolactin which occurs in minute almost undetectable amounts in males so if a man begins to lactate it is due to the presence of this hormone which in turn is a red flag signal of probable/possible neoplasm (cancerous) origin. Therefore this is definitely not the normal situation and must be investigated without delay.

    Of course it needs to be checked but I wouldn't go as far as to say that it is always a sign of cancer.
