What are the symptoms of Paget disease of the breast?
The symptoms of Paget disease of the breast are often mistaken for those of some benign skin conditions, such as dermatitis or eczema. These symptoms may include the following:
Itching, tingling, or redness in the nipple and/or areola
Flaking, crusty, or thickened skin on or around the nipple
A flattened nipple
Discharge from the nipple that may be yellowish or bloody
Because the early symptoms of Paget disease of the breast may suggest a benign skin condition, and because the disease is rare, it may be misdiagnosed at first. People with Paget disease of the breast have often had symptoms for several months before being correctly diagnosed.
