Breast Cancer - Male

This section has been reviewed and approved by the Cancer.Net Editorial Board, 4/2010
Symptoms

Men with breast cancer may experience the following symptoms. Sometimes, men with breast cancer do not show any of these symptoms or signs. Or, these symptoms may be caused by a medical condition that is not cancer. If you are concerned about a symptom or sign on this list, please talk with your doctor.

  • A lump or swelling in the breast tissue. Because men generally have small amounts of breast tissue, it is easier to feel small lumps.
  • Any new irregularity (redness, scaliness, puckering) on the skin or nipple, or a discharge from the nipple
