What is Intraductal Papilloma ?

Intraductal Papilloma is a medical condition characterized by wart-like growth of cells in the small milk ducts behind the areola (the dark area around the nipple), leading to small lump under the areola and abnormal nipple discharge. In some cases, people with intraductal papilloma may feel pain in the lumpy area. They can be found in women of any ages, although younger women tend to develop multiple papillomas whereas older women who reached menopause usually only have one papilloma. Treatment is usually not needed unless the nipple discharge persists over a long period of time. Although intraductal papilloma is not cancerous and will not increase the risk of developing breast cancer, it is still important for women with this condition to have regular breast examination to detect any changes in the breasts.
