Paget's disease is a problem of abnormal bone growth. The bone tissue breaks down too fast, so the body speeds up the rebuilding process. But the new bone is often weak and brittle. Most people don't have symptoms, but some have bone pain and deformed or broken bones. Paget's disease may be treated with medicines.
