BREAST CANCER IN MEN




Male breast cancer makes up less than 1 percent of all cases of breast cancer. Although breast cancer in men may develop at any age, it’s usually detected in men between the ages of 60 and 70. Radiation exposure, high levels of estrogen, and a family history of breast cancer can increase a man’s risk of developing breast cancer. Men with breast cancer usually have lumps that can be felt. There are four types of standard treatment for men with breast cancer: surgery, chemotherapy, hormone therapy and radiation therapy. But there are new types of treatment being tested in clinical trials.
