Breast Cancer In Men and Women Is Very Similar

The breast tissue of men is slightly different than that of women. In fact male breast tissue can be viewed as an undeveloped form of female breast tissue. This can be seen in they way in which the breast of women have the apparatus for producing and storing milk, while the breasts of men consists of only a few ducts. But even though a cancer of the breast in a woman has more places to develop, eighty to ninety percent of breast cancer in men will begin in the ducts and spread to neighboring tissue.
