Carcinoma of the male breast has a low incidence and usually occurs in 50-60 years old subjects. In presence of a mammary swelling in the male, presurgical diagnostic evaluation includes: ultrasonography, fine needle aspiration biopsy, bone scintigraphy, sierological markers. The female therapeutic protocol (surgery, chemo-therapy, hormone-terapy, radio-therapy) is efficacious also for the male, but the gold standard surgical technique is the modified radical mastectomy. The authors describe a case of breast cancer in an old male subject, who underwent a ''minimum'' mastectomy and nothing else, according to his informed consent.
