What is an intraductal papilloma?
Sometimes a wart-like lump develops in a duct just behind the areola. This is an intraductal papilloma.
You may notice a small lump under the areola and/or a discharge of clear, sticky or bloodstained fluid from the nipple. You may also feel some pain.
Intraductal papillomas can be in both breasts at the same time and are sometimes found by chance following breast surgery.

What is hyperplasia?
The breasts are made up of lobules (milk-producing glands) and ducts (tubes that carry milk to the nipple), which are surrounded by fatty tissue and supportive tissue. Sometimes normal cells within the breast grow bigger and increase in number. This is called hyperplasia. It can occur in the ducts (ductal hyperplasia) or the lobules (lobular hyperplasia).

What is a fibroadenoma?
The breasts are made up of ducts and lobules, which are surrounded by fatty tissue and supportive tissue. Sometimes tissue will grow over a lobule like a ball, forming a solid lump. This is a fibroadenoma.
Fibroadenomas are benign and don’t increase the risk of developing breast cancer. They are thought to occur due to an increased sensitivity to the female hormone oestrogen.

What is fat necrosis?
Fat necrosis is a lump that forms as a result of damage to an area of the fatty breast tissue.
Fat necrosis is benign (non-cancerous) and does not increase the risk of developing breast cancer. It can affect women of any age.
Many women don’t remember any specific injury causing the fat necrosis.
Fat necrosis feels like a firm, round lump and doesn’t usually cause any pain. The skin around the lump may look red, bruised or dimpled.
