In brief: Same as women

There is no difference in the technique, only the volume of tissue available to be imaged.

Men have 1% of all breast tissue and therefore they get one percent of all breast cancers. They are more likely to get breast cancer if they have a strong family history as women are.

In brief: The exact same

technique as with females.
A mammogram can be performed on virtually anyone with even minimal tissue in the breast regions.

In brief: Same as for women

Men have breast tissue like women, although less of it.
A mammogram is done the same way-- by compressing the breast between two flat plates and taking an x ray of the breast tissue.
