Male Breast Cancer (MBC)

Though it is rare, men can get breast cancer. Like women, men have breast tissue in which cancer cells can grow.

According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is about 100 times less common in men than it is in women.

Most breast cancer in men is ductal carcinoma, which means the cancer cells began growing in the (milk) ducts of the breast.

Ductal Carcinoma is one of the male breast cancers treated at the Abramson Cancer Center, within the Rena Rowan Breast Cancer Center, and within the Integrated Breast Center at Pennsylvania Hospital.
