Most male breast diseases are benign, although malignancies can also occur. Gynecomastia, the most common abnormality in the male breast, has characteristic imaging findings differentiating it from cancer. Fewer than 1% of patients with breast cancer are men, but the incidence of male breast cancer is increasing worldwide. Additionally, breast cancer often presents at a more advanced stage in men than in women due to delayed diagnosis. Understanding imaging features of male breast disease is important for an accurate diagnosis and optimal care. This article reviews ultrasonography and mammography findings of benign and malignant diseases of the male breast.

The purpose of this study was to determine clinical and ultrasonographic characteristics of male breast tumors.
Mammographic breast density (BD) is an independent risk factor for breast cancer. The effects of bariatric surgery on BD are unknown.
To analyze the ultrasonographic findings of invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) of the breast in 360 women and the correlations between the characteristics and the intrinsic subtypes.
Mammographic density is a risk factor for breast cancer but the mechanism behind this association is unclear. The receptor activator of nuclear factor κB (RANK)/RANK ligand (RANKL) pathway has been i...
Male breast cancer (BC) is rare, representing approximately 1% of cancers that occur in men and approximately 1% of all BCs worldwide. Because male BC is rare, not much is known about the disease, and...
The objective of the study is to evaluate quantitative changes in mammographic breast density from baseline to 24 months in postmenopausal women receiving daily doses of either BZA 20 mg/C...
The aim of the study is to identify the role of diffusion weighted MRI in the assessment of the clinical significance and outcomes of asymmetric breast densities identified on mammograms, ...
To evaluate the influence of mammographic breast density at diagnosis on the risk of cancer recurrence and survival outcome in patients with invasive breast cancer after surgery
This phase III trial evaluates mammographic breast density in participants with hormone receptor-negative breast cancer enrolled on study A011502. High breast density has been shown to be ...
A study to determine the efficacy of 8 mg/day (4 mg/breast) of BHR-700 gel compared to placebo for reducing breast tissue density in women identified as having dense breast tissue upon ana...
Any neoplasms of the male breast. These occur infrequently in males in developed countries, the incidence being about 1% of that in females.
A common and benign breast disease characterized by varying degree of fibrocystic changes in the breast tissue. There are three major patterns of morphological changes, including FIBROSIS, formation of CYSTS, and proliferation of glandular tissue (adenosis). The fibrocystic breast has a dense irregular, lumpy, bumpy consistency.
A fluid-filled closed cavity or sac that is lined by an EPITHELIUM and found in the BREAST. It may appear as a single large cyst in one breast, multifocal, or bilateral in FIBROCYSTIC BREAST DISEASE.
A condition in which abnormal cells have not spread outside the duct, lobule, or nipple to other tissues of the breast. There are 3 types of breast carcinoma in situ: DUCTAL CARCINOMA IN SITU; LOBULAR CARCINOMA IN SITU; and PAGET DISEASE OF THE NIPPLE
A rare, benign, inflammatory breast disease occurring in premenopausal women shortly after a recent pregnancy. The origin is unknown but it is commonly mistaken for malignancy and sometimes associated with BREAST FEEDING and the use of ORAL CONTRACEPTIVES.

Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
