Paget's fear
« on: June 02, 2014, 11:53:40 AM »
Hi!

I would be SO thankful if anyone took the time to answer this question for me.

For a few weeks now I've been fearing Paget's disease. I don't have any rash or itching at the moment, but I've read Paget's can spontaniasly improve, and then return within a few months?

Symtoms
1. Itching on nipple. Remember having the itch all winter. Can't remember if it was both or just one breast, or if it shifted. It went away 3 months ago and have not returned yet.
2. Hardening in nipple. Not a lump, just a difference in density between my left and right nipple.

My GP says it's nothing but I fear Paget's since non of these symptoms was present when she did the exam of my breasts. Any reassurance?

(Also, sorry about bad grammar. I'm from Sweden).

I know I am VERY late to answering this, and I hope your fear has subsided by now.

I am having the same fear right now. I have some issues with one of my nipples as well.

However, remember that paget's is EXTREMELY rare.  I am not sure how old you are, but usually it affects women above the age of 50.

If you have no rash or itching and haven't for several months, you do not have Paget's.  My doctor told me that it does not resolve with other treatments.
