Q. How can a male have a breast cancer? hello, I have a weird question here and I am not sure how many have come across this? I am not sure but I need to know whether this could be true ……my boyfriend who has been diagnosed with breast cancer……it is terribly strange but how on earth this could be possible?..I strongly think that it must be a chest cancer but they call it breast cancer. How can a male have a breast cancer?

A. Yes Saloni, Male breast cancers do exist but it is very rare. It’s called breast cancer because males do have some nonfunctioning breast tissues i.e. they can’t produce milk. It’s only found in just 1% patients. I feel sorry that your boyfriend has been diagnosed with one. However I think with proper treatment and medication, It can be cured.
