A member asked:

If my nipples sometimes get crusty or flaky is this a sign or symptom of breast cancer? what should i do?

See your doctor: Flaking or crusting of the nipples may represent eczema; however, paget's disease of the breast looks very similar. A biopsy may be necessary to diagnose. If paget's disease is diagnosed, there could be an underlying breast malignancy.
