Overview

Papilloma refers to a benign epithelial tumor growing exophytically (outwardly projecting) in finger-like fronds. In this context Papilla refers to the projection created by the tumor, not a tumor on an already existing papilla (such as the nipple.)

Causes

When used without context, it frequently refers to infections caused by Human papillomavirus. However, there are other conditions that cause papilloma, such as Choroid plexus papilloma (CPP).

Two types of papilloma often associated with HPV are "squamous cell papilloma" and "transitional cell papilloma" (also known as "bladder papilloma".)

Symptoms

Papilloma in larynx may cayse hoarseness, cough and shortness of breath.

Symptoms of papilloma in breast may be bloody nipple discharge, pain and lump in breast.

Vulvar papilloma may cause itching, lump or ulcer even infection in vulva.

Treatment

Surgery

Surgery is recommended for the treatment of papilloma.
