Male breast cancer is rare, accounting for 1% of all breast cancers. It is a hundred times more common in women than in men.
Symptoms may include: a painless lump under the nipple or areola; an inverted nipple (turned inward); swelling of the breast tissue; a rash around the nipple; discharge or bleeding from the nipple; a swelling or lump in the armpit.
