Knowing the symptoms of male breast cancer could save your life.  The best chances for treatment and
ultimately survival occur when the disease is found in its earliest stages.  If you are experiencing any symptoms
or persistent breast changes you should report it to your physician.

The most common signs of breast cancer for both men and women is a lump, mass or thickening in the breast.  
Frequently the lump is painless.  Other male breast cancer symptoms include but are not limited to:

  • Skin dimpling or puckering
  • Development of a new inversion/retraction (the nipple has turned inward) or indentation of the nipple
  • Nipple discharge

The National Cancer Institute has indicated that the types of breast cancer most commonly diagnosed in men
are similar to those in women.
