Can Men Develop Breast Cancer?
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in the U.S., affecting some 249,000 Americans in 2016. While the majority of these new cases were found in women (about 246,660), men are not immune to this disease. Approximately 2,600 new cases in men were reported this year, according to the National Cancer Institute. In other words, breast cancer is not exclusive to a particular gender, such as ovarian cancer for women and prostate cancer for men.

8 Warning Signs of Breast Cancer You Shouldn't Ignore | Natural Health Forever
8 Warning Signs of Breast Cancer You Shouldn't Ignore | Natural Health Forever Breast cancer is the leading type of cancer, along with skin cancer, diagnosed in women worldwide. Anyone can develop this cancer, and it is still not clear what causes it. However, certain factors put you at a higher risk. Such factors include increasing age, a family history of breast cancer, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, excessive drinking, exposure to radiation, hormone replacement therapy during menopause, ionizing radiation, menstruation starting at an early age and having children late in life or not at all. Although it is more common among women, men can also get breast cancer. Women who get annual mammography screenings are much less likely to die from breast cancer than those who do not. Mammograms make it easier to detect this cancer at an early stage, allowing more effective treatment. However, mammograms are not perfect every time. Knowing the possible warning signs and changes in the breasts that may signal cancer, you’ll be able to act promptly. It is better to get checked by your doctor and have a false alarm than to miss diagnosing cancer as early as possible. Here are some important warning signs of breast cancer. 1. Lump in the Breast or Armpit: 2. Red or Swollen Breasts: 3. Nipple Discharge: 4. Pain in the Breast or Chest Area: 5. Changes in Breast Appearance: 6. Nipples Become Sensitive: 7. Itching on the Breasts: 8. Pain in the Upper Back, Shoulder and Neck: Tips to lower breast cancer risk: Ask your doctor about screening and other ways you can lower your risk. Perform breast self-exams once every two months. Maintain a healthy weight. Exercise regularly, at least 30 minutes 5 days a week. Get enough sleep.Avoid drinking alcohol in excess. Avoid exposure to chemicals that can cause cancer. Do not avoid breastfeedingyour babies. Limit postmenopausal hormone therapy.

Male Breast Cancer Symptoms and Treatment | Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 2,000 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. If caught early, this disease is curable, so it's important to recognize the symptoms of male breast cancer. Michael, a breast cancer patient, shares his experiences, and Dr. Beth Overmoyer of Dana-Farber talks about the stigma associated with male breast cancer. Learn more about male breast cancer and Dana-Farber's approach to treatment: http://www.dana-farber.org/Adult-Care/Treatment-and-Support/Treatment-Centers-and-Clinical-Services/Breast-Cancer-Treatment-Center/Male-Breast-Cancer-Program.aspx#FAQ Transcription: Dore:Fifty-six year-old Michael Johnston usually spends most of his time on the golf course, but not this year. Johnston:This is the first time I’ve swung a club this year. So, watch this one, right up into the trees. Dore:Michael’s time and energy is now spent fighting cancer, and it’s a type of the disease most of us associate with women. Michael has breast cancer. Johnston:I was a hospital corpsman in the Navy for six years. I knew these things could happen. Did I really expect it to happen to me? No. Dore:Dr. Beth Overmoyer is Michael’s doctor. She’s a breast cancer expert at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. She says for many men, a diagnosis of breast cancer can be embarrassing. Overmoyer:Suddenly, a man is faced with not only having cancer, but having cancer where the predominant representative color is pink. So we need to really overcome that, because male breast cancer is treated very effectively and it is the same cancer as that in a woman. Dore:And, like women, Dr. Overmoyer says it’s important for men to know the warning signs. The most common symptoms of male breast cancer include a lump or swelling of the breast, skin dimpling or puckering, nipple discharge or retraction, and scaling or redness around the chest. Undergoing a mastectomy and chemotherapy to treat the cancer has meant a tough couple of months for Michael and his family. But, he caught his cancer early and wants warn other men: They need to check for breast cancer, too. Johnston:The people I work with, a lot of them are doing self-exams right away. They never knew they had to do that. They said that they were examining other parts of their body, and said now we’ve got to add this to the list. Dore:Michael says helping others helps him feel good, and staying healthy helps at home. Johnston:I do have a good attitude, and I’ve assured my wife that I’m not going anywhere, so I have to stick to my word, now, on this one. Dore:At Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, I’m Ann Dore, reporting.
Men Get Breast Cancer Too - CancerIS Medical Minute
Men can be diagnosed with male breast cancer. While the chances for men are much lower compared to women, men need to be aware of male breast cancer and its symptoms. Breast cancer survivor Rick Gough talks about the symptoms and his treatment. Visit http://www.canceris.net/portfolio-item/breast-cancer-can-affect-males/ to learn more about male breast cancer. Male Breast Cancer Survivor Rick Gough - CancerIS Medical Minute I was showering and I noticed that my left nipple was inverted and I hadn't noticed that before. There was no pain with it, no lumps. I couldn't feel anything associated with it other than it was inverted. One month later By mid-March I'd had an experience with it. There was some drainage that was like a lymph-y type drainage that would come out and would crust around the edge of the nipple. I'd get in the shower and it would wash right off. There was no pain or discomfort with it. One week later And then I noticed about a week after that, around the areola part there was a spot like somebody was taking a sewing needle with the eye end on the inside pushing trying to get out. And so I could feel this and it was real hard pushing when I touched it. No pain again, but tactually it was very strange. The diagnosis And I just happened to have had my dermatological annual check scheduled in mid-March. And so I went to that and the doctor says, how has everything been for the last year. Any changes? And I said yea, this. So he took a look at it and said we're going to do a biopsy of that and see what it is. I'm anticipating it will be skin cancer or something of that nature. When it came back two days later he says good news, bad news. The good news is it's not skin cancer, the bad news is it's invasive ductal carcinoma. Surgery It was the 11th of April he did the surgery and he did a sentinel node biopsy as he did the surgery, found the lymph nodes were involved. And so they did a full mastectomy and they took all the lymph nodes back up under the arm. I needed to do a six session dose of chemotherapy. The first day of chemo It was kind of interesting. The first day in I was scared, anxious about it. Probably didn't sleep well the night before because I didn't know what to expect in the way of side effects. But the office, the staff, was just absolutely great in terms of reassuring me that what you're about to take, we have other medicines so that if you have any bad side effects we can probably totally offset those, if not completely. And they were right, they were able to do that. Chemotherapy side effects I was tired but I was still able to eat and taste food. Then after about the third day food didn't have any taste anymore. As I described to my wife, this is either dirt or sand but I can't tell what it is. That didn't do a lot for our relationship on her cooking because she's always been a marvelous cook. Radiation Radiation was another experience after Dr. Lemon finished with the chemo I started radiation. And we did that for 36 treatments and it was every day, 5 days a week. Radiation side effects It was not a bad experience. I mean yea, I got some skin changes and those kind of things during the radiation, but there's a lot of ointments and creams and things that you can use on your skin which helps minimize the impact of that. Advice from experience You need to check yourself. Check your breasts, check your testicles. Make sure there's nothing strange going on, lumps or bumps or whatever. In the case of a nipple, if it's inverted have somebody check it pretty quickly. Maybe it's nothing but that's one of the common signs of breast cancer is an inversion of the nipple. Don't ignore it just because you're a man. And there's nothing that's going to happen to you that is so terrifying you can't get through it. You'll get through it and it will probably end up being easier than you think it will. If you've got a problem – if you have cancer – you have to get it taken care of, because sooner is better than later. If you think you've got a problem and you ignore it, it's not going to go away. It's only going to get worse. And your odds rapidly diminish if you don't address it quickly. You just want to get it early.

10 Symptoms of Male Breast Cancer
10 Symptoms of Male Breast Cancer Breast cancer is a disease most often associated with women. Men, however, can also be affected by cancer of the breast. It is much less frequent in men because they don’t go through a complex developmental phase, which greatly reduces the possibility of suffering from cancer. There are some milk ducts in men, although they aren’t as complete as those of women. As always, prevention is key: an earlier diagnosis means a better prognosis. In this article, we’ll discuss ten symptoms of male breast cancer. 1. Fatigue One of the first symptoms you’ll likely notice if you have developed breast cancer is fatigue. Many chronic illnesses can cause fatigue to appear, but in most cases, it goes away with a bit of rest. For cancer patients it’s different: even long periods of rest won’t help reduce fatigue. Being tired is your body’s natural way of telling you that something is wrong. This is especially worrying if it is long-lasting. As the cancer grows, your body becomes tired as it tries to fight off a disease. Contact your doctor if your fatigue doesn’t get better with rest. Weight Loss For some people, losing a certain amount of weight may be healthy; especially if you are overweight. But if you lose weight without any apparent reason, you may have male breast cancer. Because the body needs lots of energy to fight the disease, you lose lots of weight and mass. If you have cancer, your appetite is also likely to become smaller, and therefore you eat less. Over time, this can lead to weight loss. Monitor your weight to make sure it stays within healthy limits. If you lose weight without making changes to your diet or exercise, contact your doctor. 3. Lump in The Breast One of the most obvious indications of male breast cancer is a lump that develops in the chest or nearby areas. Even though breast cancer is most likely to affect women, men can also develop this type of cancer. For this reason, it’s important to be on the lookout for any new developments in the chest area. Lumps are one of the earliest signs to appear. To perform a self-check up, feel the breast muscles for any suspicious bumps or lumps. Contact your doctor immediately if you feel anything. 4. Other Symptoms Besides the commonly associated symptoms of pain, fatigue and weight loss, there are a wide variety of less usual symptoms that may also show up in some cases. Many of these can indicate the development of cancer. Sometimes, they appear out of nowhere while in other cases they develop slowly over time. One of the most unusual symptoms to appear is an unexplained bleeding originating from the nipple. Discharge may also be present. That’s why it’s important to keep an eye for any suspicious changes to the body. You can also notice swelling in the chest and surrounding areas. 5. Lump Under Nipple Sometimes, a lump may develop under the nipple, which is a strong indication of male breast cancer. Tumors can be benign in nature, meaning that they don’t spread; on the contrary, they can be malignant if they have the potential to spread from one part of the body to another. Cancerous tumors evolve rapidly, so it’s important to be aware of your body. Doctors recommend examining the torso once every few weeks to ensure optimal health. If you are unsure of how to perform a self-care routine at home, ask your doctor for further advice. 6. Redness of the Skin Another potential indication of male breast cancer is redness of the skin. The skin around the nipples may appear red or irritated. Other parts of the breast may also show this symptom. Sometimes, redness may be the only visible indication of the cancer, but other symptoms will usually also be present. If you notice any redness of the skin, contact your doctor for further analysis. The skin may develop a rash that may or may not come and go; it may also appear inflamed. In some cases, the skin will also feel warm to the touch, and it may feel tender when touched.

Can Men Get Breast Cancer? Signs are the same
Men's breast cancer is not as easy as women with breast cancer. Although it is rare, males can suffer the same amount of damage as it affects women. In the case of cancer, there is no difference in the consequences. So, understand that it is better to try to save it than before trying to fix it rather than breast cancer. Symptoms Symptoms of breast cancer are the same for men and women. But men think that breast cancer can only come to women, and they notice a few signs of it, passing it unnecessarily. If any of the following symptoms appear, it is better to consult your doctor immediately.  Breastfeeding in the breasts Changes in the form of chest strokes Drainage from the chest hump Pain in the chest strokes Breast flushing, skin exfoliation or any changes in the chest Disease that we take at that time is the cause of the healing and exacerbation of the disease, even if it is a drug or treatment we take for any illness. Likewise also breast cancer. The diet we take is very important

Georgia man learns men can develop breast cancer, too
Like a lot of guys, Leslie Mullins has never been a big fan of lab tests and checkups. “Leslie did not like the doctor at all,” his wife Karen says. So, when the now 57-year old felt a knot in his breast back in 2011, he didn't get it checked. He waited, and Googled it. “And pretty much it, it says, ‘as far as breast cancer, it was like 99.9 percent not going to be,’” Mullins remembers. “And, if you felt it, and it felt smooth, if it felt a certain way, more likely than not it was a cyst.” Experts say less than 1 percent of all breast cancers occur in men. So, Leslie Mullins felt like the odds were in his favor. Still, Karen Mullins was concerned. “And then my wife just kept asking, ‘Well, why don't you at least just see about it. Maybe it’s nothing,’” he says. So, after a year, the Madison father of two did get a physical. At the very end, he told the doctor about the lump. “And he looked at it and he said, ‘I don't like it,’” Mullins says. Suddenly, Mullins was having a mammogram, then an ultrasound, and then a breast biopsy. But he wasn’t really worried. “While I was waiting on the results to come back, it was still, ‘It's not breast cancer. It's going to be something else,’” Mullins says. But, this wasn't something else. This was breast cancer, stage 2. It had spread to the lymph nodes under his arm. “I remember sitting on our front porch and just being shocked,” says Karen Mullins. “Like a meteor had hit the earth or something. It was just a very hard time.” Cancer Treatment Centers of America oncologist Dr. John McKnight says male breast cancer is extremely rare. Men have a 1-in 1000 lifetime risk. Women a 1-in-8 lifetime risk. So, breast cancer just isn't on most men's radar. “If a man had trouble urinating, and he's 70 years old, somewhere in the back of his mind, he's thinking about prostate cancer,” says Dr. McKnight. “But, breast cancer? We've just got to get the awareness to a level where we can diagnose it early. Where people can be aware of it.” Mullins underwent a mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. Still, last year, he learned the cancer spread to his bones, and was now at stage 4, with advanced breast cancer. Dr. McKnight says men need to know if they have a family history that could raise their risk of breast cancer. And they need to know the symptoms. So, what should you watch for? “Look for a painless lump that's not going away,” Dr. McKnight says. “We look to see if the skin is changing in appearance or contour or feel. We look to see if the nipple is changing its direction.” Mullins says his cancer isn't in remission, but it's not growing either. “The outlook is good,” he says. “And I'm almost 5 years into being here.” Mullins is hoping his story will make other men more aware of their own risk. “If you notice something, don't ignore,” he says. “It deteriorates fast.”

Less than one percent of men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.Jeff Stokes was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Last December I noticed I was itchy on my left breast, Jeff said.Jeff Stokes was in the shower when he noticed he had a lump. He called his doctor and tests were ordered. His doctor was concerned that Jeff may have breast cancer.At first, Jeff was skeptical. Of course I thought, well of course its not, Im male. It is going to be fine.Jeff had surgery and test results confirmed his doctors fear.The surgeon called me one day while I was leaving my house and he said interestingly the results came back and you do have cancer, Jeff said. And wow, the world just fell apart for meI remember opening the door of the truck and then I closed it. I was like how am I going to tell my wife this. You know. This just doesnt happen.Doctors say breast cancer is not as common in men as it is in women. In fact, less than one percent of men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.Doctor Brett Parkinson, a radiologist at the Intermountain Medical Center Breast Care Center, says that most men arent on the lookout for breast cancer because they think only women are at risk of getting it. A man who gets a diagnosis of breast cancer is really surprised. It hits them from out of nowhere because, number one, they dont expect to have breast cancer anyway.Jeff certainly didnt think he could get breast cancer. He initially thought doctors made a mistake. He thought that it was possible doctors mixed up samples.A second surgery revealed that the cancer had not spread. Right now, Jeff is undergoing radiation. Doctors say his prognosis is good. As he battles cancer, Jeff has some advice for men, If something doesnt seem right, if you feel something in your breast, dont be embarrassed, or dont think that it cant happen.Doctors say many men will wait to see their doctors because they dont think they can get breast cancer.Bottom line, if you notice something unusual, call your doctor.For more information, visit cancerutah.org.(Copyright 2013 Sinclair Broadcasting Group)

October Breast Cancer Awareness Isn’t Only For Women… Men Get Breast Cancer Too!
Its that time of year again! Not only will you see pumpkin spice everything, but pink stand out amongst all of the fall colors! October is breast cancer awareness month. A common misconception is that it is only to raise awareness for breast cancer in women. But did you know that men can develop breast cancer too? In fact, approximately 1% of all breast cancers in the United States occurs in males. While 1% may not seem like a big number, that is still just over 2,000 men who will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Since there is no routine screening for breast cancer in men, most cancers are discovered when a man notices a lump on his chest. But unlike women, men tend to delay going to the doctor until the lump has gotten quite large or in some cases, has eroded through the skin. Breast cancer in men is diagnosed the same way as it is diagnosed in women, with a mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy, where a small amount of tissue is removed and examined under a microscope. The treatments that are used for breast cancer in women are the same that are used in men as well. This includes surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, biologic therapy and anti-hormone therapy. One of the problems with male breast cancer awareness is that most men do not know that they can develop breast cancer. Men are encouraged to have regular breast exams performed either by themselves or their primary care physician. Early detection is key when it comes to all cases of cancer, but especially male breast cancer. If you have any concerns, don't wait, get examined.

Male Cancer Self-Exam
Women do it all the time and men are encouraged to as well. Conduct self-exams for cancer. Only men aren't heeding the call. "Women are very comfortable doing breast examinations, men are less comfortable in a testicular examination," says Dr. Meir Daller, urologist on Lee Memorial Health System's medical staff. It is very simple- similar to breast exams; men should be feeling for a lump. While prostate cancer is mostly thought of as an older man's disease, testicular cancer is found more often in young men. It is the most common malignancy in males under 35, and also one of the most treatable. If the cancer hasn't spread, the five-year survival rate is about 99%. "Majority of the patients are cured by the surgery, or the chemotherapy or the radiation therapy. But again it's the disease process - it depends when we caught the cancer. Most men are embarrassed by the cancer and presented to the doctor quite late," says Dr. Daller. Taking a queue from the ladies who de-stigmatized breast cancer screening, men are being empowered to take matters into their own hands. "It's the easiest exam to do, every man and every person knows how his body feels, what's normal and what's abnormal," says Dr. Daller.
