Men Do Get Breast Cancer,

However, it's rarer because it does have to do with hormones.
It's usually found within men 60-70 with high estrogen levels in their bodies.

"Like all cells of the body, a man's breast duct cells can undergo cancerous changes. Because women have many more breast cells than men do and perhaps because their breast cells are constantly exposed to the growth-promoting effects of female hormones, breast cancer is much more common in women."

Hope that helps.

Men do get breast cancer. My brother had to have a male version of a mastectomy. They mammary glands but due to the lack of elevated levels of the female hormone estrogen, they just don't grow. Men don't get breasts but they are vulnerable to breast cancer.


Your dum
They do. Montel Williams, the tv personality, got a double mastectomy because it appeared that he had cancer.

Men do get breast cancer too, but not as often as women, which is why you haven't heard about it. Less than 1% of men are diagnosed with breast cancer.


Therapist
aha... but here is the crappy part - they CAN!!! It just isn't as likely.

no offense but that was a silly question, men can get breast cancer although it is less common in males.

Men can get breast cancer. But it only affects 1 in 10000 men or something like that.

They do get it. However, it's not caught as often since men don't get mammograms and do breast exams. It's usually a fluke that they do find it before it's too severe to treat.

Men ARE at risk for breast cancer, especially if there is a history of breast cancer in their family--and should do breast exams!!!


bunnygrl43
Men get breast cancer as well.


allure45connie
Breast cancer is both genetic and hormonally influenced . Improper Estrogen levels ( too hign compared to progesterone and testosterone ) can trigger or cause breast cancer .
And yeas Many men DO get breast cancer .


iamme128
they can get it.


Tim H
not true, saw a report on tv the other day. a small minority of men do.


phlada64
That's the thing. Men do get breast cancer. They have pretty much the same mechanism as women, but they feel embarassed to go to a doctor and tell them they think they have a lump in their chest. Men need to check for lumps just as much as women.

Are u thinking we will say because they do not have breasts but u are way off. Like other readers answers, yes they do get breast cancer but the incidence is a lot lower compared to women.

Yes, there is a hormonal role in breast cancer. However, MEN DO get breast cancer. They just don't get is as often as women.

WOMEN CANNOT GET PROSTATE CANCER! Women do not even have a prostate!!!!!!


ezlidblue
Men DO get breast cancer, although it is much rarer than the incidences in the women. There is no hard science as proof that any breast cancer is hormone related. You might go to WEDMD.com and reasearch this topic, if you're really interested in it.
