Please clarify: There are three different diseases named for dr paget, but none affects the lung directly. Paget's of bone seen on chest x-ray is not a cancer risk. Paget's of breast warns of an underlying breast cancer that might spread. Paget's of the bottom is a low-aggressiveness skin malignancy without lung involvement. Sorry for the confusion, hope you can sort things out & good luck.

Paget's sarcoma occurs in only about 1 percent of patients with Paget's disease of the bone. These patients are usually older than 70 years of age. This type of malignant bone tumor is very aggressive and carries a poor prognosis. None of the medical treatments for Paget's disease have had an effect on the risk for the development of Paget's sarcoma.
