Saving the Male Breast: A Systematic Literature Review of Breast-Conservation Surgery for Male Breast Cancer
ConclusionsBreast conservation may be considered a safe alternative in the surgical treatment of MBC. Future research should focus on better standardization of local therapy for MBC and improved reporting of outcomes.
This study proposes a Bayesian spatial joint model of Bernoulli distribution and Poisson distribution to map disease count data with excessive zeros. Here, the spatial random effect is simultaneously considered into both logistic and log-linear models in a Bayesian hierarchical framework. In addition, we focus on the BYM2 model, a re-parameterization of the common BYM model, with penalized complexity priors for the latent level modeling in the joint model and zero-inflated Poisson models with different type of zeros. To avoid model fitting and convergence issues, Bayesian inferences are implemented using the integrated nes...

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and today we are focusing on male breast cancer. The disease in men accounts for about 1 percent of all breast cancer cases. Dr. Tara Narula reports.
Breast cancer has become one of the most widespread female malignancies worldwide, accounting for 25% of cancer diagnoses among women (1). It is also the first leading cause of female cancer mortality, accounting for 14.7% of cancer deaths (1). Although male breast cancer is scarce, accounting for nearly 1% of all breast cancers, the prevalence of male breast cancer is also increasing by 1.1% each year (2). The etiology of breast cancer is still unknown, and there are many factors that may increase a woman's chances of breast cancer.
It's an extremely rare form of cancer in men, and male breast cancer accounts for just 1% of all breast cancer cases, said Dr. Siddhartha Yadav, a hematology-oncology fellow with the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.

[New Times] October is breast cancer awareness month. And whereas the spotlight is commonly put on breast cancer in women, male breast cancer is a concern that needs immediate attention.
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.
