Intraductal Papilloma

Screening and Tests for Intraductal Papilloma

Screening for intraductal papilloma may began with your doctor feeling for a small lump under the nipple, but this lump cannot always be felt and a mammogram does not always show it, although an ultrasound exam may. Other tests for and related to intraductal papilloma include:

  • A breast biopsy, which will test to see if the lump’s cells are cancerous
  • An analysis of the nipple discharge to see if the cells are cancerous
  • A ductogram (also called a galactogram), which is an x-ray taken after contrast dye has been injected into the affected duct
