Male breast cancer survivor gets NHS check-up invites suggesting he wears a BLOUSE

Tony Herbert, from Leicester, was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer in 2011. He said letters for routine check-ups advise him to wear a blouse to make undressing for the scans easier.

Conclusions: 18F-FDG PET/CT is useful and should be considered for staging male patients with breast cancer especially suspected axillary or distant metastases. Further evaluation with higher number of patients is needed for comparison with pathology results and demonstrating the impact on treatment or survival.

Conclusion 18F-FDG PET/CT showed good diagnostic and prognostic utility in recurrent MBC. It was better than bone scan in evaluation of skeletal metastases. Most importantly, 18F-FDG PET/CT helped in early detection of second malignancy and their clinical management in studied patients.

Conclusions: FES and FDG uptake in multiple lesions from ER+ male breast cancer patients did not differ from female breast cancer. Response and survival are also similar in male and female breast cancer patients in our study. Male breast cancer patients are appropriate for inclusion in imaging and clinical trials of endocrine and molecularly targeted therapies which are synergistic with endocrine therapy.

Objectives The etiology of male breast cancer (MBC) is largely unknown but a causal role of exposure to organic solvents has been suggested. Previous studies on occupational risk factors of breast cancer were often restricted to women who are frequently exposed to lower levels and at a lower frequency than men. We investigated the association between MBC and occupational exposure to petroleum and oxygenated and chlorinated solvents in a multicenter case-control study of rare cancers in Europe. Methods The study included 104 MBC cases and 1901 controls. Detailed lifetime work history was obtained during interviews, togeth...

We present a rare case of a 77-year-old man with suspected recurrent prostate cancer with an incidental finding of advanced-stage breast cancer showing different degrees of 18F-fluciclovine uptake.

CONCLUSION: This report highlights a novel case of MBC with a rare genotypic presentation. A need exists to further explore this disease process because the literature is scant with information regarding the long-term treatment and outcomes of MBC, especially in the genotypic form presented here. Subsequent studies in the long-term outcomes of various MBC cases will need to be pursued to better understand the optimal screening and treatment strategies for this disease. PMID: 26730232 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS: MBC is a rare tumor with similar biological and metabolic characteristics of female breast cancer. FDG PET/CT seems to be useful, particularly in the restaging setting, to delineate the correct therapeutic approach and to predict the prognosis. PMID: 26018128 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Susan K. Boolbol, MD Chief, Division of Breast Surgery Mount Sinai Beth Israel For most women, the average risk of developing breast cancer is about 12 percent. However, if you have a mutation on either of the two most common genes associated with breast cancer -- BRCA1 and BRCA2 -- that risk can jump as high as 80 percent. While it's natural to wonder if you might have inherited an abnormal BRCA gene from one of your parents, it's also important to remember that only about 5-10 percent of breast cancers are due to hereditary mutations; the overwhelming majority of women with breast cancer have no family history of the di...
