Last Update: 05/02/2019

Paget's disease of the breast is a rare type of cancer that affects the skin of the nipple or areola. The most common symptoms are redness, itching, and scaling of the nipple and areola skin. The nipple may also be flattened and have strange yellow or bloody secretions.

Normally, women with this type of cancer usually have one or two tumors already in the breast.
