intraductal papilloma (IN-truh-DUK-tul PA-pih-LOH-muh)

A benign (not cancer), wart-like growth in a milk duct of the breast. It is usually found close to
the nipple and may cause a discharge from the nipple. It may also cause pain and a lump in the
breast that can be felt. It usually affects women aged 35-55 years. Having a single papilloma
does not increase the risk of breast cancer. When there are multiple intraductal papillomas,
they are usually found farther from the nipple. There may not be a nipple discharge and the
papillomas may not be felt. Having multiple intraductal papillomas may increase the risk of
breast cancer. Also called intraductal breast papilloma.
