What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope
What is Paget's Disease of the Breast?
Unlocking the probability of breast cancer remission starts with knowing vital information about your diagnosis.
Paget's disease of the breast — sometimes called Paget's disease of the nipple — is a rare form of breast cancer that occurs almost exclusively in women. However, there have been rare cases in which the disease has affected men. Paget's disease of the breast usually begins at the ducts of the nipple, then metastasizes (spreads) to the nipple surface and the areola (the dark circle of skin surrounding the nipple).
According to the National Cancer Institute, this malignant (cancerous) disorder accounts for less than 5 percent of all breast cancer diagnoses in the United States. Recognizing the signs and symptoms is critical to your treatment’s success, given that over 97 percent of people with Paget's disease also have either invasive cancer or DCIS somewhere else in the breast.
What are the Signs of Paget's Disease of the Breast?
This malignant condition initially appears as inflammatory, chronic, “eczema-like” changes around the nipple and adjacent areas. As your cancer progresses without treatment, symptoms of Paget's disease may worsen and include:
- Scaling, flaking, and thickening of the skin on your nipple
- Itching, tingling, and/or a burning sensation
- Flattening of the nipple (inverted nipple)
- Bloody or yellowish discharge from the nipple
- Pain and increased sensitivity
Here at New Hope Unlimited, our cancer care team’s goal is to reverse these symptoms before they lead to complications that may reduce your quality of life.
What Caused Your Cancer?
As with most cancers of the breast, the exact underlying cause of Paget’s disease remains unknown. However, researchers suspect the following as potential contributors to increasing your risk for Paget’s disease of the breast:
- Increasing age
- Having the inherited gene mutation BRCA1 or BRCA2
- Personal history of breast abnormalities
- Family history of breast cancers
- Dense breast tissue
- Radiation exposure
- Weighing more than is healthy
- Intake of hormone replacement medications
- Excessive alcohol consumption
To curb the onset or recurrence of Paget's Disease of the breast, discuss preventive strategies with your physician.
Diagnosing Paget's Disease of the Breast
Because early detection is significant to your Paget's disease survival rate, a doctor may order these tests to find cancer cells or tumors:
- A physical examination of the breasts
- Ultrasound and/or breast MRI
- Biopsy of the nipple and areola
