What is the cause of papillomas?

Viruses (such as sexually transmitted HPV), smoking, and sun damage are the main causes of papillomas, which are benign (not cancerous) growths. Although papillomas themselves are usually not dangerous, they can indicate a risk of cancer.

(HPV) causes most papillomas. However, for some papillomas, HPV is not the root cause.

An example is an inverted papilloma of the urinary tract, which research has linked to smoking and other possible causes. Genital HPV spreads through contact (contact) with the skin of a person who has an HPV infection. Contact includes vaginal, anal, and oral sex. Some types of HPV cause genital warts, which are hard, rough bumps that grow on the skin.

Anyone who is sexually active can get HPV and genital warts. Squamous cell papilloma is caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. When papillomas are found on the skin, they are more commonly referred to as warts or warts. And papillomas that occur in the genital tract are known as genital warts.

Squamous cell papillomas can also appear on many other parts of the body. Squamous cell papilloma has been investigated as a pathological entity on its own in the mouth and throat, esophagus (digestive tract), respiratory tract, and conjunctiva (the membrane that covers the eye). Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). This virus is common in humans and some studies estimate that between 75 and 80% of men and women will be affected by HPV at some point in their lives if they are not vaccinated against the virus.

HPV is transmitted through genital contact, most often during sexual intercourse. Most people who are infected with HPV never have any symptoms. There are more than 150 different subtypes of HPV and approximately 40 of these subtypes can affect the genital tract. Two specific subtypes, HPV 6 and HPV 11, account for more than 90% of PRR cases.

These two subtypes are the same HPV subtypes that are most commonly identified in genital warts (anogenital condyloma). Subtypes 16 and 18 of HPV account for the majority of the remaining cases. Taken together, these four subtypes account for approximately 70% of cervical cancer cases. Intraductal papillomas are benign (not cancerous) wart-like tumors that grow inside the milk ducts of the breast.

They are made up of glandular tissue along with fibrous tissue and blood vessels (called fibrovascular tissue). Many intraductal papillomas have no symptoms. The most common symptom is unusual discharge from the nipple. The fluid that comes out of the nipples may be clear or bloody.

You may feel a small lump behind your nipple, or your doctor may feel it during an exam. A respiratory papilloma (PAP-Pill-lo-Ma) is a wart-like tumor or tumor on the surface of the larynx (larynx). Respiratory papillomas are caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). These growths can cause damage to the vocal cords and airway problems.
