In 2019, an estimated 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the US, along with 63,960 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer. Male breast cancer is said to occur when some breast cells divide more rapidly than healthy cells and form a tumour. "They took out three lymph nodes ... and in January, the other breast will be removed". Can Men Get Breast Cancer?

Since men are born with a small amount of breast tissue, the risk of them developing breast cancer can not be ruled out completely. For many people who have received a breast cancer diagnosis, as well as their families, the five-year breast cancer survival rate of 88% has helped transform their diagnosis from one of fear to one of hope.
