Male breast cancer: What factors improve outcomes?

 6 months ago       93 Views

Male breast cancer is a relatively rare disease. For this reason, very few studies have evaluated the factors that have associations with better outcomes. A fresh investigation begins to fill this gap.

Male breast cancer is rare but understudied.

Male breast cancer (MBC) accounts for just 1% of all breast cancer cases.

However, some scientists believe that prevalence has risen over the last few decades.

Scientists have also spotted differences between the tumor biology in MBC and breast cancer in women.

They have also noted other differences between female breast cancer and MBC. For instance, MBC tends to occur later in life, and it more commonly moves into lymph nodes, making it harder to treat.
