Breast Cancer in Males

Although rare, male breast cancer does occur -- usually in men between the ages of 60 and 70. Typically, men with this type of cancer have lumps that can be felt in the breast. Anyone (male or female) should consult their doctor if they notice any changes in their breasts.
 
Survival for men with breast cancer is similar to that for women with the disease when their stage at diagnosis is the same. Unfortunately, male breast cancer is usually diagnosed at a later stage than most cases in women. Breast cancer found at a later stage may be less likely to be cured.
