Lead Sponsor. Has Dmc. Rationale: Gathering medical information and tumor samples from patients with male breast cancer may help doctors learn more about the disease.
Ruddy, E. A systematic review of the English language literature was conducted to identify studies relevant to male breast cancer between and and including at least 20 patients. Relevant published data regarding risk factors, biological characteristics, presentation and prognosis, appropriate evaluation and treatment, and survivorship issues in male breast cancer patients are presented.
Breast cancer in men is rare, but it does happen. For men, the lifetime risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer is about 1 in 1, Still, some scientists think that the incidence of breast cancer in men is going up.
In late the Internet Movie Database reported that Dustin Hoffman suddenly had the urge to breast-feed. Had the thenyear-old Hoffman—who brought mainstream culture face to face with autism in Rain Man and went mano a mano with an Ebola-like filovirus in Outbreak —never quite broken character from his film Tootsie? He was just really keen to help out with his first grandchild. Interestingly, he could have possibly lent a helping, er, breast, if he had held the suckling newborn to his nipples for a couple weeks although he could also have tried starving himself or taking a medication that would affect his brain's pituitary gland.

How many times have we seen a man talking to a curvaceous woman only to have her point to her own eyes and say "Hey, buddy, up here! It's funny -- or, at least, it was funny the first dozen times we saw it -- because it's true. The male eye does have a way of drifting south. But why?
SAN ANTONIO — Results from the largest series of male breast cancer cases ever studied showed that there was significant improvement in overall survival for male breast cancer patients over the duration of the study, but the improvement was not as good as has been seen for female breast cancer, according to research presented today at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposiumheld Dec. For example, even though most male breast cancers are ER-positive, we found that only 77 percent of patients received endocrine therapy like tamoxifen. We also found that even though 56 percent of male breast cancers are diagnosed when the tumors are very small, only 4 percent of patients had breast-conserving surgery; most had a mastectomy, which significantly impacted their quality of life.
