Hey ladies!! I need a little feedback. I am 28 years old and recently went to my nurse practitioner and she did my yearly physical. She found a small, easily moveable nodule in my right breast under my nipple area. I have had no tenderness, and no discharge at all. My aunt died at age 41 from breast cancer on my fathers side and was diagnosed with breast cancer in her middle 30s. Her breast cancer came from this type of tissue so my family wanted me to definitely look into it. I went for a breast biopsy and it came back as an intraductal papilloma. The radiologist recommended I see a surgeon to get it removed just in case. I have had my surgery and got the results back from the pathologist and everything came back benign (whew). I know most studies say that these occur in women starting in their 30s. I know I am almost to that point but if anyone has more information you could offer on the subject and if me being younger then most to have this alreadyis a very bad sign for future things to come. I obviously will be following up in 6 months for an ultrasound and I will be doing my regular breast self exams. Thank you for any information

Hello, I am 32 and just last week went in for a sub-areola excision of an intraductal papilloma (after bleeding nipple, mammogram, ultrasound and ductogram lead me to the surgeon). Mine also came back indicating DCIS. I am glad yours came back clear! I don't know if there is a correlation with papillomas and future cancer but you are your best advocate and I would stay on top of it.
