Can Men Get Breast Cancer? The answer is YES. Many men do not realize that they can develop the disease, and don’t seek medical attention when they first discover a mass or lump in their chest. Breast cancer is often diagnosed at more advanced stages (3 or 4) in men.
As in women, the most common symptom in men is a lump that can be felt in the breast. In most cases, such lumps are painless.
Staging of cancer is a way of describing where the cancer is located, how much the cancer has grown, and if or where it has spread.
