In brief: Men

Men can grow breast tissue is some circumstances.
This condition is called gynecomastia. It warrants investigation not because it's breast cancer or makes you more likely to get breast cancer, but because it can indicate an underlying medical problem. Liver disease, for instance, will frequently cause gynecomastia. I would suggest that you discuss this with your regular doctor, who will probably want to do a few blood tests.
