Microdochectomy

Microdochectomy is a very selective procedure carried out for a pathology of the nipple ducts, which cause bloody/ blackish coloured nipple discharge.

It is often carried out along with a another procedure called Ductoscopy wherein a very thin scope is passed into the dilated duct to visualise the exact pathology. Though the problem is often non cancerous, early cancer is being increasingly detected in a significant number of such patients.
