Men with Breast Cancer Have Distinct Findings on Mammogram
Men who develop breast cancer usually present with an irregular subareolar mass with speculated or indistinct margins on a mammogram, according to a report in the December issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology.
It is necessary to be attentive to any palpable masses and to obtain a mammogram early. This study proves that punctuate calcifications on a mammogram and circumscribed masses on ultrasound can be associated with cancer in men. Radiologists should be aware of these findings to avoid the misdiagnosis of cancer in men as a benign lesion.
