Objective To summarize our experiences in the clinical diagnosis and treatment of male breast cancer(MBC).Methods The clinical date of 24 MBC patients treated in our hospital from January 2006 to December 2012 were retrospective analyzed.Results The average age of these 24 patients was(55.7±2.1) years.All the patients received surgical treatment,and the surgical procedures were simple excision of breast lesion in 6 patients,breast resection alone in 5 patients,and modified radical mastectomy in 13 patients(bilateral in 1 case).The pathological diagnoses included invasive ductal carcinoma in 18 cases,papillary carcinoma in 4 cases,mucinous adenocarcinoma in 1 case,and malignant solitary fibrous tumor in 1 case.Twenty patients received chemotherapy,7 received radiotherapy,and 15 received endocrine therapy after operation.The 5-year survival rate was 54.2%.Conclusions The incidence of MBC is low.This malignancy is mainly seen in elderly individuals,with relatively long disease course,poor prognosis,and high risk of metastasis.MBC is mainly treated by surgery,and adjuvant chemotherapy,radiotherapy,and endocrine therapy may be applied,if appropriate,after the operation.
