Did You Know?

Although it’s rare, men can also get breast cancer. 1 out of every 100 breast cancers diagnosed in the United States is found in a man. The most common types are invasive ductal carcinoma and ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), which is the presence of abnormal cells inside the lining of the ducts in the breast and doesn’t spread to other tissues in the breast. DCIS is considered the earliest form of breast cancer.

The most common symptoms of breast cancer in men are:

  • A lump or swelling in the breast.

  • Redness or flaky skin in the breast.

  • Irritation or dimpling of breast skin.

  • Nipple discharge.

  • Pulling in of the nipple or pain in the nipple area.
