Florid papillomatosis of the nipple

Common Name(s)

Florid papillomatosis of the nipple

Florid papillomatosis of the nipple, also known as a nipple adenoma, is a non-cancerous tumor (adenoma) of the breast. Signs and symptoms include: a lump under the nipple or areola (area surrounding the nipple), nipple pain, swelling, or discharge. These tumors typically occur in women between age 30 and 40, but can occur at any age, and can occur in men as well. There have been cases of cancerous growths within nipple adenomas, but these are very rare. Nipple adenomas can be diagnosed using MRI tests or biopsies as they are not seen clearly on mammogram or ultrasound. Treatment typically includes surgical removal of the abnormal growth along with a small amount of normal surrounding breast tissue to prevent re-growth. This conditon is sometimes misdiagnosed as Paget disease of the breast which also has abnormal growths or tumors of the nipple but they are cancerous (also visit: Paget disease of the breast.).
