[edit] Discussion of Papillomatosis

  • A condition in which multiple papillomas exist in more than one duct system
  • Considered a premalignant condition.
    • Women with multiple papillomas have a 7.4-times lifetime relative risk of developing breast carcinoma.
    • Papillomatosis should be considered similar to lobular carcinoma in situ in the prognostic information that it provides to the patient and her physician.
  • Solitary intraductal papillomas are believed to arise from the terminal portions of the ducts, while multiple papillomas arise from the terminal ductal lobular units.
