  2. I just have a comment about the name ”paget’s diseases “ this the name of the bone disease but in the breast it should be called “paget’s disease Of the breast “ or “it has paget morphology “ meaning that it doesn’t invade past the basement membrane rather grows throw the ducts and reach the surface “intraepidermal spreading and it’s exclusive to breast cancer , our teacher didn’t like whenever anyone said paget’s disease and he went through all this to n the class

    1. No doubt, which is why I always use “Paget disease of the breast” or “of the bone” instead of just “Paget disease”.
