Male breast cancer is rare, accounting for less than 1% of all cancers in men and less than 1% of all breast cancers . It is usually unilateral; only 1% is bilateral . Low incidence rate in men is due to relatively low amount of breast tissue and a different hormonal status than women . Male patients are frequently at a higher age (5-10 years older; peak incidence at 67 years) and at higher stage than female at breast cancer diagnosis . For the last three decades, the incidence of male breast cancer appears to be slowly rising . Our aim is to assess the incidence of male breast cancer in our Breast Unit from 2015 to 2020.
