In brief: Surgery is necessary

Pagets disease of the breast is a condition that requires definitive surgery +/- radiation to the breast to prevent it from becoming a locally advanced process.
Most people can undergo a lumpectomy that includes removing the nipple-areola complex, followed by a course of breast radiation. You should see a breast surgeon for a full discussion.
