I rec'd. an interesting email warning about the problems
with Pagets Disease. This is a rare form of cancer that
occurs OUSIDE the breast.

Starts with a rash or lesion around the nipple or aureole that
won't clear up. This should be checked out immediately!

If it spreads, it goes INTO the breast tissue and then causes
all of the nightmares related to breast cancer.

Symptoms are:

A sore or rash on your nipple that will not heal.

A persistent redness, itching, oozing and crusting on your
nipple, causing it to itch and burn.

Even though it resembles dermatitis, your doctor should
suspect cancer if it is only on one breast. A biopsy should
be taken.

Be sure to tell all of your female friends of this.
