    A condition in which there is a malignancy in the tissue of the breast which is characterized by a lump, thickening or other abnormalities. Included is Paget's disease of the nipple, an uncommon type of cancer that forms in or around the nipple and is characterized mild scaling and flaking which may later spread to the areola or other regions of the breast. The disease may also originate in the areola where it resembles eczema, a non-cancerous, itchy rash. Symptoms may include tingling, itching, increased sensitivity, burning and pain. There may also be discharge from the nipple which may appear flattened against the breast. Most people with Paget's disease of the nipple also have underlying breast cancer which may be invasive or confined to the milk ducts.

    Breastcancer.org - Symptoms and DiagnosisBreast cancer symptoms vary widely, from lumps to swelling to skin changes, and many breast cancers have no obvious symptoms at all. Symptoms that are similar to those of breast cancer may be the result of non-cancerous conditions like infection or a cyst. Breast self-exam should be part of your monthly health care routine, and you should visit your doctor if you experience breast changes. If you're over 40 or at a high risk for the disease, you should also have an annual mammogram and physical exam by a doctor. The earlier breast cancer is found and diagnosed, the better your chances of beating it. The actual process of diagnosis can take weeks and involve many different kinds of tests. Waiting for results can feel like a lifetime. The uncertainty stinks. But once you understand your own unique "big picture", you can make better decisions. You and your doctors can formulate a treatment plan tailored just for you.MontgomeryBreastcancer.org - Montgomery; ArdmoreBreastcancer.org
