1 doctor agrees

In brief: Around 1%

Paget's disease of the bone (and i assume you bone, not nipple) in about 1% of cases gives rise to aggressive cancers.
Let's hope this does not happen to you. A few patients with paget's died as a result of high-output heart failure from the arteries connecting directly with veins in the bone; hopefully with today's treatment this will not happen. Good luck.

In brief: Depends on stage

If your talking about page's disease of the breast (there is also paget's of the bone, which is benign): if lymph nodes are negative, 5 year survival is about 85% and 10-year survival is about 79%.
If the lymph nodes are positive, 5 year survival is 32% and ten year is 28%.
