Aetiology

Intraductal papilloma of the breast is a benign, non-cancerous tumour that develops in the milk ducts and is very common in women over 40. It is caused by the abnormal growth of cells within the milk ducts due to a combination of hormonal and environmental factors.

Diagnosis

Intraductal papilloma of the breast is usually diagnosed with a physical examination, mammogram, and ultrasound. Biopsy of the affected area may also be necessary to confirm the diagnosis.

Differential diagnosis

Intraductal papilloma of the breast can be confused with other conditions such as breast cancer, fibroadenoma, and other forms of benign breast tumours.

Treatment

Treatment for intraductal papilloma of the breast usually involves the removal of the affected area, either through a lumpectomy or mastectomy. In some cases, medications such as tamoxifen may be prescribed to reduce the risk of recurrence.

Prognosis

The prognosis for intraductal papilloma of the breast is usually good, as it is a benign condition. However, it is important to monitor the affected area for any changes, as there is a small risk of recurrence.
