Breast Cancer Basics

Male Breast Cancer

Men can also be at risk of developing breast cancer. Male breast cancer is rare as less than 1 percent of all breast cancers occur in men. Each year in Canada, approximately 220 men will be diagnosed, and 60 men will die from the disease.  Men diagnosed with breast cancer should be considered for genetic testing.

Male breast cancer is treated like breast cancer in postmenopausal women.  Treatments may include surgery, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, or radiation therapy.
