Breast Cancer in Men
Men do get breast cancer. According to the American Cancer Society Men and Breast Cancer Statistics for 2015 indicate that-
• About 2,360 new cases of invasive breast cancer in men will be diagnosed
• About 430 men will die from breast cancer
Breast cancer is about 100 times less common among men than among women. For men, the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. The number of breast cancer cases in men relative to the population has been fairly stable over the last 30 years.
