Male breast cancer screening in high-risk patients extremely successful, study says

Mammograms are more effective at detecting breast cancer in high-risk men than in women who are at average risk of developing the disease, and could provide potentially lifesaving early detection of male breast cancer.

CONCLUSIONS: Mammography and ultrasound remain the leading modalities in breast imaging among males for diagnostic workup of palpable mass, with gynecomastia being the predominant diagnosis. However, presentation with palpable mass was also associated with malignancy. Despite a notable MBC rate in our cohort, the likelihood of cancer is low in young patients and in cases of gynecomastia.

Conclusion: 18F-FDG PET/CT revealed previously unsuspected distant metastases in 16% of male patients with pre-PET/CT stage IIB breast cancer and 33% of those with stage III breast cancer. These rates are comparable to previously published upstaging rates in female patients. 18F-FDG PET/CT demonstrates value for systemic staging of male patients with breast cancer and should be considered for use in newly diagnosed patients, particularly those with stage IIB and III disease.

CONCLUSIONS: Our data demonstrate that MG and US have similar accuracy with regard to tumour size estimation. US assessment showed the highest sensitivity in determining tumour size, followed by MG and CE. However, MG demonstrated a significant advantage for estimating the real tumour size for pT2 tumours compared to US or CE. PMID: 29204896 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
