Hey guys. My mum has this scaly, outgrowth around her areola of her left breast, and it is kinda itchy. It has been around for about a month or so, and she's kinda worried, although, there are no other symptoms of breast cancer. So, what can this condition be? :(

  • I don't like the sounds of this itchy scaly nipple condition. It sounds like Paget's disease of the breast, which is cancerous and can spread throughout the body! I would get a biopsy of the nipple ASAP with a breast surgeon. Let us know what happens.
