Risk Factors for Developing Male Breast Cancer
Risk factors for breast cancer in men are very similar to those for women: a strong family history, advancing age, significant use of alcohol, obesity, and inactivity are the most obvious. If there is a family history of breast cancer on either side, a man would be wise to carefully consider his risk and avail himself of information on breast cancer in men. Men and women alike should pay attention when relatives are diagnosed with breast cancer. A doctor may recommend screening, including a mammogram, for men with high risk factors.
