n Male breast cancer makes up less than 1 percent of all cases of breast cancer.
n Although breast cancer in men may develop at any age, it’s usually detected in men between the ages of 60 and 70.
n Radiation exposure, high levels of estrogen, and a family history of breast cancer can increase a man’s risk of developing breast cancer.
n Men with breast cancer usually have lumps that can be felt.
Never miss a local story.
n There are four types of standard treatment for men with breast cancer: surgery, chemotherapy, hormone therapy and radiation therapy. But there are new types of treatment being tested in clinical trials.
