In brief: Surgery
First, mammogram and possibly MRI to determine whether there is more cancer in the breast.
If not, then lumpectomy, which would remove the nipple & areola, followed by radiation, is one option. Mastectomy is another option, and reconstruction can be done at the same time. See a breast surgeon or surgical oncologist for a discussion of treatment options.

In brief: Options
Paget's can be treated with removal of the nipple-areola area (lumpectomy) followed by radiation or total mastectomy which includes the nipple.
Chemotherapy is not usually needed. Hormonal therapy is used if the tumor is estrogen or Progesterone positive.
