Male breast cancer (MBC) is a rare disease, accounting for 1% of all breast cancers. Because of its rarity, it is treated similar to female breast cancer, although important differences exist. This chapter will address risk factors associated with MBC, clinical and pathologic features specific to MBC, and treatment and prognosis. Survivorship issues and surveillance recommendations unique to MBC will also be discussed.
