I have been reading the posts here for clues to what I may have but feel I am now more confused than ever. What is a breast papilloma? I have a lump on my left breast about an inch above my aereola. The surface of it is visible as it is kind of shiny. It started out small and is very slowly getting larger and more noticeable. It is beginning to look like I am getting more of the small ones on the same breast. It looks like there may be a black spot in the middle of it and for a while it looked kind of like a pimple, but the spot is only under the surface and there is no head. No fluid ever comes out of it, but there is a little pain when I push on it. It has been there for about a year and a half or so. I am beginning to worry about it a little, although I believe that if it were anything serious, the appearance of it would be changing quicker. Should I show it to my doctor? My MD has done manual breast exams on me regularly and should have seen it, but has never mentioned it. The only thing he has ever told me is that my breasts are very dense and wants me to have a sonogram. I know this is very vague and isn't possible to diagnose, but I can't seem to find anyone who has had anything similar and that bothers me.
