MY LATEST ARTICLE

This is one of the most detailed studies of male breast cancer to date, albeit with a small cohort. Despite this, it showed overall survival and relapse-free survival similar to historic reports in female breast cancer. This is one of the first studies to show this and should give heart to men diagnosed with the disease. In the future, as treatments for men benefit from more research projects that are targeted, outcomes could be even better.

    Thank you for this!

    I checked out the citations - wondering if you have any data about overall vs breast-cancer specific survival, particularly with regard to the 10-year survival rates mentioned? Median agewas pretty advanced, so I assume some of this mortality at 10 years must be all-cause

    He's 53.

    I was able to access the abstrac and didn't see anything about breast cancer specific survival either.
    I'll keep an eye out for the actual full paper - thanks
