how can paget's disease of breast be treated?

Possible: The treatment is surgical resection. However, because paget's disease of the breast is associated with an underlying breast cancer (in situ and/or invasive) in almost 90% of cases, often without an associated breast mass or mamm abnormality. This underlying cancer has to be treated accordingly based on the er/pr/her2 neu and staging, etc.The prognosis will depend on the underlying beast cancer.
