Papilloma are warts that form in the nose and/or the sinuses. There are two types of warts. The benign version is similar to those you may have on your hands or feet that grow outward. This papilloma is most commonly found on the septum or the turbinates. The second type is an inverted papilloma, which grows into the lining of the nose
and sinuses. While inverted papilloma are usually benign as well, about 10 percent of them may transform into cancer.
All nasal and sinus warts are caused by the papilloma virus, which attacks the nasal and sinus membranes. Patients may note some bleeding because these growths often bleed. Papilloma usually occur on one side of the nose, and patients will often complain of one-sided obstruction. There is no medicine to treat this, and surgical removal is usually recommended. A CT scan can detect a mass consistent with papilloma, but ultimately the diagnosis must be made by biopsy and pathological examination.
