Breast Cancer In Men
Men have breast tissue just like women, but their breasts are less developed. Breast cancer in men is similar to the disease in women, but there are some differences. For the most part, breast cancer in men is treated like breast cancer in women who have reached menopause (when the ovaries stop making estrogen).
Less than 1% of all breast cancers occur in men. Researchers estimate that 230 new cases of breast cancer in men were diagnosed in Canada in 2017 and that 60 men died from the disease.
