Current indications for breast cancer screening in the male population are lacking, although family history of breast cancer may be such an indication. The authors describe a man with a history of clinically diagnosed right breast cancer who subsequently tested positive for the breast cancer susceptibility gene BRCA2 and received a diagnosis of mammographically detected left breast cancer at screening. The authors discuss the clinical implications of this approach to detecting male breast cancer.
