What does this mean? Inverted papilloma with dysplasia and foci of in situ invasive squamous cell carcinoma (transitional)?

Premalignant: An inverted papilloma is a tumor in which surface epithelial cells grow downward into the underlying supportive tissue. It may occur in the nose and/or sinuses or in the urinary tract (bladder, renal pelvis, ureter, urethra). With dysplasia and in-situ squamous Ca this would probably be a premalignant sinus carcinoma bordering on squamous cell Ca needing resection. Read more

Pain and white discharge coming from inverted nipple, only in 1 breast. Discharge has been for yrs pre children but pain over past few days. Not red?

Pain and white discharge coming from inverted nipple, only in 1 breast. Discharge has been for yrs pre children but pain over past few days. Not red?

Check it out.: You didn't mention if the nipple inversion is a new finding. White discharge from the nipple usually turns out to be non-problematic, but I am concerned because you have pain and the inverted nipple. Even though breast cancer is usually not painful, and even though you are a young woman, please get your doctor to evaluate you. Better to be on the safe side here. Lgromkomd. Read more

Are warts caused due to papilloma?

Are warts caused due to papilloma?

Yes: Warts are caused by the human papilla virus. These can be treated a number of ways, but I find that liquid nitrogen works best. Your physician can spray this on the wart in the office - they don't need to be burnt off or cut out. Read more

Do benign intraductal papillomas need removal?

Do benign intraductal papillomas need removal?

Maybe, maybe not: If the tumor is benign then it might not need to come out. However, if it's in there long enough, it might start to cause problems like blocking the ducts to your mammary glands. Also, just because it's benign today doesn't mean it won't transform at some point. It might be worth having it out, if it's simple and easy to do. See your local surgeon for more ideas. Read more

I gather you already saw a physician and had it checked? .
If no symptoms and normal work up, you should not worry.
If you have symptoms, a stress test with some imaging modality may be warranted.
