Male Breast Cancer
Male breast cancer is an uncommon disease, and much of our knowledge has been gained through multiple retrospective studies. What is encouraging is that the conclusions drawn from these studies have been largely consistent. Breast cancer treatment in men has been mostly guided by studies in women. These guidelines have been established owing to the similarities of disease behavior between the two genders. Because of the consistency of conclusions and similarities in the disease process, a relative consensus on how to treat male breast cancer has been generated despite the absence of randomized prospective trials in men.
