How common is breast cancer in men?


Answer by  G12345 (1808)

Approximately 1% of all new breast cancer diagnosed is in men, giving an approximate life risk to a male at 0.1%. However, if you have family history or a mutation in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes you are at higher risk. Always see you doctor for any concerning lumps.

Only around 4% of men in the world develop breast cancer. This is a very uncommon disease since men do not produce too much estrogen. It is also less likely for men to have this type of cancer since their torsos are mostly made out of muscle which gives more protection to trauma.

Not very common, but it has been known to happen. Rod Roddy (sp) the old announcer from The Price is Right died of it. It is more common in woman than men.
