Male Breast Cancer
A man's breast tissue can develop cancer of the male variety. Male breasts do have fatty tissue, ducts, and breast cells even though they are unable to produce milk. Men's breast tissue resembles that of adolescent girls just starting puberty. When the cells in these tissues proliferate excessively and form a tumor, cancer occurs. Chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, hormone treatment, and targeted therapy are all used to treat male breast cancer. The prognosis is based on the size of the tumor and if it has migrated to other bodily regions.
