You may have heard that male breast cancer, though considerably more rare than female breast cancer, is more serious. The medical community does not consider this to be the case. Breast cancer in men and women seem to be very comparable according to staging. The only difference might be that women are more aware of the possibility, and more diligent about screening than men, whereas men are less likely to pay attention to information on breast cancer.
Any breast cancer found at a later stage is more difficult to treat. But, if men do catch breast cancer in themselves while it is still in an early stage, their chances for survival are reportedly as good as a woman.
