Bone or breast?: Paget's disease of the bone is characterized by an accelerated rate of bone metabolism, resulting in overgrowth of a bone at a single or multiple sites and affects integrity of the bone. Paget's of the breast is an eczema-like eruption on the nipple and areola with commonly a yellow exudate. It commonly suggests an underlying breast malignancy. Hope this helps.
