In brief: Painless lump

Breast cancer appear in men as silent painless lump, often ignored then as fixed ulcerated mass.
1% of breast cancers are in men, as diagnosis is done in late stages, prognosis is poor, due to lack awareness in men cause delayed treatment. Early diagnosis, is the key for cure.

In brief: Lump

Painless lump or mass on the breast- usually underneath nipple- is the most common presentation.
If this ignored- which commonly happened, you can also see nipple retraction, ulceration of the nipple or skin, fixation to skin or underlying muscle, tumor tenderness, and palpable lymph glands on arm pit. Nipple involvement occurs in about 40-50% due to the scarcity of the breast tissue.
