Ask the Nurse

It looks like I have Paget’s disease around my nipple. It hurts. What should I do?

You need to see a breast specialist if you think you have Paget’s disease of the breast/nipple as this is a rare form of breast cancer. Please contact your PCP for a referral to a breast center or directly contact a breast specialist for an appointment as soon as possible. You will need to have a biopsy and treatment.

You can apply olive oil to the dry skin.
