Answer

Determining the population most affected by atypical papilloma and ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) involving a papilloma is difficult, as series differ in their design and inclusion criteria for these lesions. However, most studies indicate atypical papilloma and DCIS involving a papilloma occur in a slightly older age group than intraductal papilloma (IDP) (L/C ST) [1, 4] and are primarily seen in women older than 50 years. [1, 4, 2]
