Male Breast Cancer

They're all born with a small amount of breast tissue. Breast tissue consists of milk-producing glands (lobules), ducts carrying milk to the nipples, and fat.

Women begin to develop more breast tissue during puberty, and men do not. But because men are born with a small amount of breast tissue, they may develop breast cancer

Types of breast cancer diagnosed in males include: • Cancer that begins in the milk ducts (ductal carcinoma). Almost all male breast cancers are ductal carcinoma.

• Cancer which starts in the milk-producing gland (lobular carcinoma). This form is rare in men because there are few lobules in their breast tissue.

• Certain forms of cancers. Other, more unusual types of breast cancer that can arise in men include nipple disease in Paget and inflammatory breast cancer
