Male Breast Cancer

Breast cancer occurs mainly in women, but men can get it, too. Many people do not realize that men have breast tissue and that they can develop breast cancer. Gynecomastia is the most common male breast disorder. It is not a tumor but rather an increase in the amount of a man's breast tissue. Usually, men have too little breast tissue to be felt or noticed. Most common types of breast cancer in men are ductal carcinoma in situ, invasive ductal carcinoma, and invasive lobular carcinoma.
