After osteoporosis, Paget’s disease is the second most common type of bone disease, as explained by Medical News Today. Specifically, the body absorbing old bone and forming abnormal bone characterizes the disease. This malfunctioning of the bone remodeling process causes a person with Paget’s disease to develop new bone in incorrect locations of the body, while old bone is then removed in areas where it is needed. Because regeneration of the bone is impaired, a person with the disease will not heal as effectively from an injury.

One might assume that a dermatologist wouldn’t be familiar with Paget’s disease. However, there are certain skin-related forms that can only be detected when assessed by a dermatologist or skin cancer expert. Dr. Kayal at Kayal Dermatology is an esteemed Mohs surgeon with extensive knowledge and experience in the treatment of Paget’s disease. Dr. Kayal understands that when diagnosed early, patients with Paget’s disease have more effective surgical options.

Extramammary Paget’s disease (EMPD) is an example of a rare cancer of the breast that is ironically found in skin abnormalities around the anus and genitals, most commonly in postmenopausal women. Stanford Healthcare describes some of the symptoms of EMPD, which include itching and burning, with pain and bleeding from scratching. The lesions may appear red, scaly and crusty. In time, the eczema-like rash can spread to other areas surrounding the genitals, including the thighs. Paget’s disease may also affect the skin tissues of the breast, specifically the areola and nipple.

Dermatologists have the expertise and diagnostic tools needed to properly identify Paget’s disease, as it is often mistaken for eczema, psoriasis or moniliasis. Testing might include a skin biopsy, ultrasound or needle biopsy. The most suitable treatment protocol will depend on whether tumors are found beneath the skin. It’s important to understand that when it comes to Paget’s disease, symptoms are notably mild. Yet, because the disease could be caused by invasive or adnexal malignancies, any symptoms should be evaluated quickly.

First time ever at a dermatology office! So I was a little nervous... But they have a very friendly staff and it was nice meeting PA Joel! Felt comfortable and he was informative & made me feel like I wasn’t the only person dealing with my issue. I can’t wait to see some results and get some relief!!

Detlef K.

I’ve been going here awhile. I’ve got a few pesky issues, some due to my not allowing areas to completely heal, sins that prolongs my already glacier like speed healing! I really appreciate Dr. Kayal and Joel who combine to take of me and my family.

Michael V.

Was greeted upon my arrival, very nice waiting room, was taken back immediately. Very professional, caring and friendly staff. They want to help you. The PA Joel was very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to help me. I was given a prescription to address the problem. Will be back with other issues, keep up the good work.
