Aims and objectives
Breast cancers are quite rare in men and are found in approximately 1% of cases.
breast cancer is the second most frequent pathology in men after gynecomastia.
Because of its rarity,
our data of breast cancer in men is very limited and derives largely from case reports and female patients (1-3).Gynecomastia,
the most common breast lesion in men,
is very similar to other nodular diseases.
breast malignancies in men mostly occur at the subareolar plan of the breast as...
Methods and materials
Patient population: This study took place at our institution in Istanbul from 2011 to 2017,
and was approved by the Human Subjects Institutional Review Board.
Informed written consent was obtained from all the patients before any interventional procedures.
In this study,
14 men who had malign breast lesions were included in the study.
Benign lesions and suspicious lesions which were verified to be histopathologically benign were excluded.
The patients who had breast mass but declined...
Because of histopathology,
a total of 16 malignant breast lesions were diagnosed (the mean size was 24.29±12.51 mm) on 14 men.
The mean age was 62.21±11.00 years (age range,
14 of the 16 solid breast lesions were invasive ductal carcinomas (IDC),
1 was papillary carcinoma (PC) and 1 was ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS).
One patient had bilateral breast cancer: the right breast was IDC and the left breast was PC,
and also had a primary risk factor (Figure 1).
His daughter was...
Radiologic imaging played an essential role in diagnosing male breast cancer.
Using the combinations of imaging methods improves diagnostic performance.
Elastography combined with conventional ultrasound can provide specific benefits and information on breast malignancy in men,
as well as better characterization when diagnosing breast masses.
