Male breast cancer: a disease distinct from female breast cancer.

08:00 EDT 28th September 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Male breast cancer: a disease distinct from female breast cancer."

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 treatment recommendations are typically extrapolated from data available from clinical trials enrolling female BC patients.
