In brief: Yes; not sure!

Men with a mother, sister, or daughter with breast or ovarian cancer, male relatives with breast cancer, or with ashkenazi jewish heritage, have a high risk of carrying a brca mutation.
Men with this mutation are at risk for breast and other cancers. Rarely, men without a brca mutation get breast cancer, usually in their later years. I think the ribbon is still pink! sorry guys...
