Paget's disease is not contagious. Paget's disease is associated with underlying malignancy, it is itself malignancy in situ. If this disease is not multicentric then breast conservation surgery can be done, and chemotherapy can be given afterward . in case of multicentricity mastectomy is the choice. consult your doctor.
