Abstract: 

Introduction & Objective: To review the articles and data sources published on male breast cancer. Materials & Methods: Searching for male breast cancer in recent half decade results in more than 10000 – links leading to 3472 chosen direct sours for male breast cancer which among 198 articles and web sites from 1982 to 2006 has been mentioned. In this review; screening, diagnostic tools, surgery and adjuvant therapy and also the prognosis has been analyzed.
Results: Male breast carcinomas are 1% of male carcinomas, often presented with painless tumor and mean age of 60 worldwide. Screen mammography is advisable only in first degree related breast carcinoma cases and in genetic positive ones. Advised surgical procedure is mastectomy either modified or radical and some case series rare reported conserving method. There are not clinical trials comparing different chemotherapy regimes in male patients and so the adjuvant in males is the same as women. Prognosis is the same as in females but males are diagnosed in later stages due to less informed concepts.
Conclusions: Increase in attitude and approach quality in men is indicated.
