Male breast cancer

Although rare, breast cancer can also occur in men. Of all breast cancers, only 0.7% affect male patients, with an average age at diagnosis of 65 years. Risk factors include a history of undescended testis, infertility or rare hereditary disorders. Often male breast cancer presents in families confronted with hereditary breast cancer. Breast cancer in men is treated similarly to breast cancer in women.
