Can Men Get Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is very rare in men.


For example – Each year in the UK  there are approx 300 men diagnosed with breast cancer, compared with a staggering 45,000 cases of breast cancer in women.





What causes breast cancer in men?


The biggest risk factor of male breast cancer is aging.  For instance  – statistics show that most cases are diagnosed in men between the 60 -70 age bracket.  A secondary factor is high oestrogen levels which can occur as aresult of obesity or liver conditions such as cirrhosis.
