Though breast cancer is very rare in men, they can be diagnosed. Less than one percent of all breast cancer cases develop in males and only 1 in 1,000 men will ever be diagnosed, according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation .
Male breast cancer is most common in older men, though it can occur at any age. Men usually detect the cancer as a hard lump under the nipple and areola.
