The Untold Truth about Male Breast Cancer
Risk factors of male breast cancer. It include BRCA gene mutations, Klinefelter syndrome, testicular disorders, family history of male or female breast cancer, and high estrogen level which can be a result of excess alcohol consumption, tobacco, less physical activity and obesity. Men possess a small amount of nonfunctioning breast tissue (breast tissue that cannot produce milk) that is concentrated in the area directly behind the nipple on the chest wall. Like breast cancer in women, cancer of the male breast is the uncontrolled growth of the abnormal cells of this breast tissue.
