Male breast cancer

Carcinoma of the male breast is a relatively rare disease that accounts for less than 1% of all cases of cancer in men. Optimal management of breast cancer in men is unknown because the rarity of the disease precludes large randomised trials. Most information has been obtained from small, single-institution, retrospective studies or by extrapolation from breast cancer trials in women. There are increasing reports in the literature confirming the feasibility and accuracy of SLNB in male breast cancer patients with negative axillae, suggesting that SLNB may be offered as a surgical management option to male breast cancer patients by surgeons who are experienced with the technique (51, 52). Nine men with breast cancer underwent SLNB in the ALMANAC trial. SLN was identified in all of them and there was no false-negative result (53).
