Is it possible for a Male to get breast cancer?
This has always been question thats been in my head for years.
                      








reifguy
VERY RARE but answer is yes


Carol
Yes it is more that possible but most men who get it die because
they think it is only a cancer that attack women.
So they don't get help as soon.
Most men who get breast cancer are over weight so when the mass
appears they don't notice it as soon.
The doctors do a ultra sound to find the breast cancer with men.

Once it is found the treatment is Pretty close to the same as for
a women.

Yes. Any part of the human body can develop cancer. Men have breast tissue, just not as much as women . . so they can get breast cancer too.

Yes men do get chest cancer unlike women they dont have as much
tiisue or have the mammary problems women do but men are known to have or get chest cancers that link to the glands close to the armpits and then they can spread to the mans ribs and lungs which is were they spread to the rest of the body if not caught early when the man feels his glands under the arms swell and hurt he might allow it to
go and grow and it takes on the lungs for their supply of blood which the cancers seem to grow toward. once in the lungs it spreads to the other organs once in thelungs it will be a deadly proposition for the lungs link the cancer cells to the blood supply the cells pass easiy
to the liver and other organs like the kidneys and the lower bowels
and the heart. a killer once in the lung.
cheers
yes they do get it and suffer the same.

Yes.

Yes, it is possible for a male to get breast cancer. Male breast cancer rates aren't as high as female rates but they do exist.

Yes it's possible and if breast cancer runs in your family (either in males or females) you need to do monthy self exams.


rcmit
Absolutely yes, but it's not nearly as common in men as women


Peace. Love. Dance
Yes, of course. Actually I saw a Science Fair project on that subject last year, and it said it is possible for men, but it is 100 times less likely that a man will get it, as to a woman.

On the last link it said it usually happens to men between 60 to 70 years of age.

Here is some websites for you:

Yes, it is. Although many people believe that only women have breasts, this is not true. men also do, just they are not the same as women's. it is true that men can get breast cancer.

In men, breast cancer is very rare. There are about 300 men diagnosed each year in the UK, compared with more than 45,500 cases of breast cancer in women. That's about one man for every 140 women diagnosed. So Yeh it is possible.

Yes, definitely. Women are 100 times more likely, but it does occur in men, usually between the ages of 60 and 70. The Mayo Clinic as an excellent website dedicated solely to this subject.

Sam
Yes.


lo_mcg
Yes it is.

Fewer than 1% of all those diagnosed with breast cancer are male. For example, in the UK around 46,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer each year and 300 of them are men. Just under 12,000 women and around 90 men die from breast cancer in the UK each year.

Most men diagnosed with breast cancer are over 60.

It's exactly the same cancer that women get - there's no such thing as 'male breast cancer' - and it's treated in exactly the same way

The person who says women get breast cancer after giving birth is talking rubbish.

In fact never having had children and never having breastfed are risk factors for breast cancer in women. Having children young and breastfeeding both offer a measure of protection against breast cancer.

Both women with children and those without get breast cancer

Male breast cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the breast.

Breast cancer may occur in men. Men at any age may develop breast cancer, but it is usually detected (found) in men between 60 and 70 years of age. Male breast cancer makes up less than 1% of all cases of breast cancer.

YES. Sir,

It is possible for a male to get Breast cancer. I am giving below detailed information on the subject.-

Even though men do not have Breasts like women, they do have a small amount of breast tissue. In fact the Breasts of an adult man are similar to the breasts of a girl before puberty, and consist of a few ducts surrounded by breast and other tissue. In girls, this tissue grows and develops in response to female hormones, but in men, who do not secrete the same amounts of these hormones, this tissue does not develop.

However, because it is still breast tissue, men can develop breast cancer. In fact, men get the same types of breast cancers that women do, although cancers involving the milk producing and storing regions of the breast are very rare. Breast cancer in men is a very rare disease. This is possibly due to their smaller amount of breast tissue and the fact that men produce smaller amounts of hormones like estrogen that are known to affect breast cancers in women. Only a tiny fraction of breast cancers diagnosed - less than 1% - occur in men. And because it happens so infrequently, much is still unknown about male breast cancer. It is very rare for a man under age 35 to get breast cancer, but the likelihood of developing the disease increases with age. Family history in a close female relative and a history of radiation exposure of the chest can also increase the risk.

The clearest risk for developing breast cancer seems to be in men who have had an abnormal enlargement of their breasts in response to drug or hormone treatments, or even some infections and poisons. Individuals with a rare genetic disease called Klinefelters syndrome, are especially prone to develop breast cancer. Men with severe liver disease tend to have lower levels of male hormones, (androgens) and higher levels of female hormones (estrogens) putting them at an increased risk of developing breast cancer.

The major problem is that breast cancer in men is often diagnosed later than breast cancer in women. This may be because men are less likely to be suspicious of an abnormality in that area. In addition, their small amount of breast tissue is harder to feel and allowing tumors to spread more quickly to the surrounding tissues.

Men also have very similar symptoms as women have. Most male breast cancers are diagnosed when a man discovers a lump on his chest. However, unlike women, men tend to go to the doctor with more severe symptoms that often include bleeding from the nipple and abnormalities in the skin above the cancer.

The symptoms, diagnosis and treatment techniques for male breast cancers are similar to that of female (physical exams, mammograms, and biopsies) and the same four treatments that are used in treating breast cancer in women (surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and hormones) are also used to treat the disease in men. So, it is very essential that the awareness is spread among men also. -
