MALE BREAST CANCER: A CASE REPORT AND REVIEW OF LITERATURE

Carcinoma of the breast in a male is quite a rare occurrence. However, the risk factors, the pathologic features and prognostic factors documented for male breast carcinoma are remarkably similar to what obtains in women affected by the disease. In addition to assessing and confirming the patient-specific risk factors, and clinical presentation, a definitive diagnosis can be made by subjecting a needle core biopsy specimen or even a modified radical mastectomy specimen together with dissected axillary lymph nodes to histopathological evaluation. We report a case of an invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast in a 63 year old male who presented with a recurring and progressive right breast mass on account of the rarity of this diagnosis in males. The patient had a modified radical mastectomy and the mass with dissected lymph nodes was subjected to histopathological analysis upon which a diagnosis of mucinous invasive ductal carcinoma was made. Immunohistochemical tests were done to further characterize the tumour, which was found to be positive for the oestrogen receptor. The patient was placed on tamoxifen post operatively and is alive and symptom free as at the time of this report.[Full Text Article]
