Male breast neoplasms. State of the art

Di Mauro S., Bartolo V., La Malfa G., Maglitto D., Barbera S., Turrisi M., Cesario E.


Prompted by a number of cases referred to their attention and in view of the low incidence and often late diagnosis of this neoplasm, the authors felt it was useful to review the literature and draw attention to the clinical aspects, the importance of correct staging and elective and adjuvant treatment. They conclude by stressing the need for an awareness campaign to aid early diagnosis and the most appropriate treatment owing to the fact that, because of anatomic considerations, this pathology is undoubtedly more aggressive and has a less favourable prognosis in males compared to females.
