Male Breast Cancer Case


Treated by : Dr. Nimesh Lodh
Patient's Name : Male Breast Cancer Case

We recently operated upon a male patient, who had presented with a breast lump since a couple of months.

The patient hailed from a rural place and had undergone a biopsy of the lump, which revealed adenoid cystic carcinoma, a very rare variant of breast carcinoma.

At Aims Hospital, we evaluated the patient thoroughly and advised the completion of mastectomy.

Accordingly, a modified radical mastectomy was performed following which the patient recovered uneventfully.

The subsequent histopathology report revealed the carcinoma was localized and there was no axillary lymph node involvement.

We discussed this case at our weekly Tumour Board Meeting and it was unanimously decided that the patient would not require any further treatment.

The point of discussing this case: Male breast cancer is quite uncommon, but not unheard of.

Diagnosis and treatment are carried out similarly and if detected and treated early, male breast cancer patients can also expect to have good outcomes.
