Men can develop breast cancer.
But a fibroadenoma is not breast cancer. In women it is a very common (particularly for teenagers and women in their 20s), completely harmless mass.
Fibroadenomas are rare in men but they can develop. I remember that a male cousin of mine had a breast lump removed when he was in his teens. I don't know what it was but it might well have been a fibroadenoma (maybe it's a family thing - I had one at 16). That happened about 50 years ago and I don't think he's had any issues since.
Hopefully your mass is just a harmless fibroadenoma. Let us know what happens
