Types of Male Breast Cancer

Breast cancer can be separated into several types based on the way the cancer cells look under the microscope. In some cases a single breast tumor can be a combination of these types or be a mixture of invasive and in situ cancer. And in some rarer types of breast cancer, the cancer cells may not form a tumor at all.

Breast cancer can also be classified based on proteins on or in the cancer cells, into groups like hormone receptor-positive and triple-negative.

Ductal carcinoma in situ-DCIS

Infiltrating or invasive ductal carcinoma-IDC

Infiltrating or invasive lobular carcinoma-ILC

Paget disease of the nipple

Inflammatory breast cancer

 

Oncologists, Breast Surgeons are the specialists who deal with the breast cancer
