Dear Dee-Dee 4,

Thank you for posting. Intraductal papillomas are benign (non-cancerous), wart-like tumors that grow within the milk ducts of the breast. They are made up of gland tissue along with fibrous tissue and blood vessels (called fibrovascular tissue). In papillomatosis, there are very small areas of cell growth within the ducts, but they aren’t as distinct as papillomas are. We would recommend you talk to your breast surgeon about the results and what follow-up or screening he would recommend.

The cancer nurseline is available on 1800200700 if you would like to speak with a cancer nurse,

Kind Regards
