Can Male teenagers carry Breast Cancer?
I'm a boy.
And i recently felt a bump-ish thing on my not here nipple.
Its right on it.
Its...different compared to my other one...
So my question is...
Is this suppose to happen with puberty or something?
Or could it be ...possibly cancer..
Men without doubt can and do get breast cancer. My uncle died of it. Spread to his lungs and liver. I, also, had breast cancer. I had double mastectomies this July. Get checked to be sure.
Wrong honey. Men can get breast cancer too. It's much rarer than in women, And breast cancer in 13 year ancient males is unheard of.
From the National Cancer Institute.
Definition of breast cancer: Cancer that forms in tissues of the breast, usually the ducts (tubes that carry milk to the nipple) and lobules (glands that make milk). It occur in both men and women, although male breast cancer is rare.
Estimated modern cases and deaths from breast cancer in the United States in 2009:
New cases: 192,370 (female); 1,910 (male)
Deaths: 40,170 (female); 440 (male).
Male breast cancer accounts for 1% of adjectives cases and is usually found in males between 60 and 70 years of age.
"Male breast cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form within the tissues of the breast.
Breast cancer may occur in men. Men at any age may develop breast cancer, but it is usually detected (found) in men between 60 and 70 years of age. Male breast cancer make up less than 1% of all cases of breast cancer.
The following types of breast cancer are found in men:
* Infiltrating ductal carcinoma: Cancer that have spread beyond the cells lining ducts in the breast. Most men near breast cancer have this type of cancer.
* Ductal carcinoma in situ: Abnormal cells that are found within the lining of a duct; also called intraductal carcinoma.
* Inflammatory breast cancer: A type of cancer in which the breast looks red and swollen and feel warm.
* Paget disease of the nipple: A tumor that has grown from ducts beneath the nipple onto the surface of the nipple.
Lobular carcinoma in situ (abnormal cell found in one of the lobes or sections of the breast), which sometimes occurs within women, has not been seen surrounded by men.
Radiation exposure, high levels of estrogen, and a family history of breast cancer can increase a man’s risk of developing breast cancer.
Anything that increases your risk of getting a disease is call a risk factor. Having a risk factor does not mean that you will get cancer; not having risk factor doesn’t mean that you will not get cancer. People who think they may be at risk should discuss this next to their doctor. Risk factors for breast cancer in men may include the following:
* Being exposed to radiation.
* Having a disease related to high level of estrogen in the body, such as cirrhosis (liver disease) or Klinefelter syndrome (a genetic disorder).
* Having several female relatives who have have breast cancer, especially relatives who have an alteration of the BRCA2 gene."
It is much more likely that you have a cyst, or those pectorals are growing. However if this still bothers you, by adjectives means see your doctor. Source(s): http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/t…
The chances of a 13 year old male getting breast cancer are as close to zilch as makes no difference.
Yes, men CAN get breast cancer; it's rare though - a lesser amount of than 1% of those diagnosed with breast cancer are male. And most men diagnosed with it are over 60, though through breast cancer support networks I hold met a very few men in their late 40s and 50s next to breast cancer.
In the town where I live there is a man who was diagnosed beside it at the age of 24. I don't know him, I know about him - his case made the papers because he is the youngest man EVER to have be diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK, the youngest by many years.
80% of adjectives people diagnosed with breastcancer are over 50. It's rare contained by women under 40, fewer than 0.1% of women diagnosed are under 30, and it's almost unheard of surrounded by under 25s.
So you can see how unlikely it would be for a teenage male to enjoy breast cancer
Most breast lumps in men are actually a condition called gynaecomastia, a button-like growth underneath the nipple and areola area that can be felt and is sometimes visible to the nude eye and occasionally it can be quite tender.
This increase in the amount of breast tissue is not a tumour and occurs due to change in hormone balances at times like youth - your age in other words.
This is almost certainly what you have; mention it to your doctor subsequent time you see her/him so that s/he can reassure you.
yeah it's possible, guys could also have breast cancer, not simply girls .
you should go check it out with the doctor if it's bothering you so much .
it's better safe than sorry .
It would probably be easier for you to move about back in time than a 13 year old BOY getting breast cancer. Unheard of.
No you dont hold breat cancer cause your not a girl and you might be imagining it but if it really bothers you check with a doctor
Yes men get breast cancer too. But it usually is men who
are over weight and usually over 50 years of age.
And the bump-ish entry on the nipple is most likely
normal as we get bumps on the areal this is totally
regular. And at 13 your safe to say wow im just growing
up and my body is one normal. Changes with the
body as we go from little kid to mature can be scary
but take care and own fun.
