Male Breast Cancer Facts:

Male breast cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the breast.

Breast cancer may occur in men at any age, but it usually occurs in men between 60 and 70 years and makes up less than 1% of all cases of breast cancer.

Approximately 2,600 men are diagnosed with breast cancer in the US each year.​

About 10% of men with a breast cancer diagnosis were born with a gene mutation that increased their risk of breast cancer.

About 1/3 of breast cancer clinical trials are open for men to participate in.
