In brief: 1% of all breast ca

Male breast cancer accounts for 1%of all breast cancers.
Family history can play a significant role. If a man has an abnormal lump in his chest/nipple area, he should see his physician. Men can get mammograms and ultrasounds for further evaluation. The good news is that male breast cancer is as treatable as female breast cancer when found early.
