Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.Early Paget's disease of the breast may present as -

Itching

redness

scaly or thickened/flaky skin on the nipple

A tingling or burning sensation in the nipple

Crusty,oozing ,thickened skin on the nipple or areola

straw coloured or blood tinged discharge

inverted or retracted nipple

lump in the breast.

If your skin irritation or itching persists for over a month,a biopsy of the area may be needed to rule out Paget's or other problems.Initially the problems may come and go,may respond to treatment and it may be several months before a diagnosis is reached. Paget's Disease may occur in both males and females.It would be prudent to consult a experienced surgeon or an Oncologist if the problem has been persisting for long.
