Male breast cancer (MBC) is a disease that claims the lives of many unsuspecting men. MBC affects less than 1% of men only one out of a thousand will be diagnosed with the disease. According to the American Cancer Society (2019) this year, 2,670 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer (MBC) and at least 500 of them will loose their lives to this disease. Most breast cancers in males are diagnosed as ductal carcinomas (Chalasani, 2019).
