abstract

  • In this case series, we present the history and imaging of several male patients with breast complaints. Given the rise in men presenting with breast cancer, from 1 in 100,000 in the 1970s to 1.5 in 100,000 in 2012 [1,2], these cases presented here together provide the useful reminder that a comprehensive clinical history and focal physical examination is critical when assessing the symptomatic male (as well as female) patient with a breast complaint.
