Aim. Male breast cancer is a rare disease. The symptoms, diagnosis and treatment are similar to those of female breast cancer, and also the survival which is determined by the stage of the disease.
Methods. During the period 1996-2000, 4 cases of male breast cancer aged 55-68 years, have been treated.
Results. Only 1 patient died 18 months after surgery due to bone and lung metastases; the other 3 patients are still alive and disease-free.
Conclusion. The importance of an early diagnosis of male breast cancer is emphasized in order to obtain a good prognosis and survival rate.
