For the roughly 2, American men who are diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States annually, the news can be very surprising. We offer cutting-edge oncologic care, as well as emotional and psychosocial support services and coordination of care with other providers. In addition to treating men with breast cancer, our physician-researchers are also involved in research focused on male breast cancer. Because this disease is rarer in men than in women, more research is needed to learn about causes of breast cancer, optimal treatments, and side effects of these treatments in men. Our ongoing research will be key to advancing our understanding of breast cancer in men, and to developing the best therapies.
