Uncommon: Pagets disease of the breast is much less common than other presentations of breast cancer, accounting for only 1 to 3 % of new cases of female breast cancer that are diagnosed annually in the United States. It has been described in patients ranging in age from 26 to 88, however the peak incidence is between 50 and 60.
