Human genes for papilloma

Papilloma [DOID:2615]

Papilloma refers to a benign epithelial tumor growing exophytically (outwardly projecting) in finger-like fronds. In this context papilla refers to the projection created by the tumor, not a tumor on an already existing papilla (such as the nipple). When used without context, it frequently refers to infections caused by human papillomavirus (HPV), such as warts. There are, however, a number of other conditions that cause papilloma and in many cases there is no known cause.
