Intraductal Papillomas - What it is

intraductal papillomas conditions & treatments

Intraductal papillomas are small, tiny wart-like growths in the breast’s milk ducts and are non-cancerous. They are common between the ages of 35 to 55 years.

There are 3 types of papillomata:

  1. Solitary intraductal papilloma which can present as a single lump near the nipple and can cause nipple discharge.
  2. Multiple papillomas may present as groups or clusters of small growths, farther away from the nipple and may not cause nipple discharge.
  3. Multiple papillomatosis are very small groups of cells inside the ducts and they are more scattered.

There are no known risk factors.
