Breast cancer is about 100-times less common in men than women, but, American Cancer Society researchers estimate 410-men will die of breast cancer this year.
The American Cancer Society estimate more that 22-hundred new cases of male breast cancer to be diagnosed this year. Male breast cancer presents just the same as in women. Men will feel a lump, see their doctor, and a mammogram will be scheduled to see if it’s consistent with cancer, and a biopsy may be performed.
If the lump turns out to be cancerous, the treatment regimens for men and women are similar.
Breast cancer in men spreads similarly as in women, so early detection is critical.
