Cancer types

Male breast cancer

Men have a small amount of breast tissue and can develop breast cancer. Male breast cancer is much rarer than female breast cancer and accounts for around 1% of the cases of breast cancer diagnosed in the UK each year.

The links links below are specifically about breast cancer in men and how it may be treated.

If you have been affected by cancer in some way and would like to talk to someone about what you have read or need help finding information - you are welcome to drop into any Maggie’s Centre or to visit Maggie’s Online Centre and talk with a cancer support specialist.
