Mammography in men

The normal male breast contains subareolar ducts similar to girls of prepubescent age. When they are stimulated they can extend and branch out, but the formation of lobules is extremely rare, as is the pathology that derives from it.

 

Cysts are uncommon. For every 100 women with breast cancer, one man suffers from this disease.

 

Diagnosis and treatment is similar to what women undergo, with the same routine bilateral projections (CC and MLO views).

 

Its incidence is increasing, just as the occurrence of breast cancer in women is increasing, due to:

 

▪ Exposure to oestrogen or reduced exposure to male hormones
▪ Genetic disorders such as Klinefelter’s syndrome.
▪ Exogenous administration of oestrogens in transsexuals
▪ Radiotherapy on the chest wall
