Caption: Papilloma. Close-up of a papilloma, a type of benign tumour, on a patient's scalp. The papilloma appears swollen and pink, and has fewer hairs than the nearby skin. Papillomas grow from epithelial tissue, which forms the skin and covers the body's inside surfaces. They are caused by infection with a virus called papillomavirus. Warts and verrucas are types of papillomas. Most papillomas are harm- less and disappear of their own accord. If they cause discomfort or embarrassment, however, they can be snipped off with a wire and the stump sealed by heat.
