Abstract: Breast cancer in men is uncommon. It accounts less than 1% of all types of cancer in male. The survival rates of breast cancer are similar in men and women. Men tend to be diagnosed at an older age than women (mean age is about 67 years). Most patients present late for several reasons, including the absence of early signs and symptoms. We report a case of invasive ductal carcinoma in a 36 year old man who was treated with modified radical mastectomy.
