In brief: Yes,

breast cancer can occur in men, although not common.
If there is a lump in a male breast, mammographic evaluation is appropriate.

Lumps can also be evaluated by ultrasound and biopsy as necessary.

In brief: Yes

Mammograms will show the breast tissue and any lupms in the breast.
That is the case in both female as well as male breast cancer.

In brief: Likely

Physical examination & mammogram with possible breast ultrasound can be helpful in evaluating males for breast cancer.
Needle biopsy of a firm breast mass may also be indicated.
