January 5, 2007, Newsletter Issue #47: Nipple Changes are Worth a Doctor Visit

Tip of the Week

Red, oozing nipples are not a symptom you would be likely to miss in your own breasts. This symptom might indicate another very rare form of breast cancer, called Paget's disease of the nipple. This form of breast cancer can appear with or without a lump and accounts for five percent of all breast cancers. However, approximately ninety-five percent of all people diagnosed with Paget's disease of the nipple have breast cancer.

Often the only symptom is an oozing nipple accompanied by a rash, sometimes on just one breast. Naturally, if you have a nipple that burns, itches, and oozes fluid, you should head to the doctor. The sooner you can get a diagnosis for this problem, the sooner you can start treating it and getting relief from symptoms, whether the diagnosis is cancer or not.
