RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.
A malignant cystic or semisolid tumor most often occurring in the ovary. Rarely, one is solid. This tumor may develop from a mucinous cystadenoma, or it may be malignant at the onset. The cysts are lined with tall columnar epithelial cells; in others, the epithelium consists of many layers of cells that have lost normal structure entirely. In the more undifferentiated tumors, one may see sheets and nests of tumor cells that have very little resemblance to the parent structure. (Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972, p184)

The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

One of the mechanisms by which CELL DEATH occurs (compare with NECROSIS and AUTOPHAGOCYTOSIS). Apoptosis is the mechanism responsible for the physiological deletion of cells and appears to be intrinsically programmed. It is characterized by distinctive morphologic changes in the nucleus and cytoplasm, chromatin cleavage at regularly spaced sites, and the endonucleolytic cleavage of genomic DNA; (DNA FRAGMENTATION); at internucleosomal sites.

Cancer risk in close relatives of women with early-onset breast cancer--a population-based incidence study. (1/361)

Inherited susceptibility to breast cancer is associated with an early onset and bilateral disease. The extent of familial risks has not, however, been fully assessed in population-based incidence studies. The purpose of the study was to quantify the risks for cancers of the breast, ovary and other sites of close relatives of women in whom breast cancer was diagnosed at an early age. Records collected between 1943 and 1990 at the Danish Cancer Registry were searched, and 2860 women were found in whom breast cancer was diagnosed before age 40. Population registers and parish records were used to identify 14 973 parents, siblings and offspring of these women. Cancer occurrence through to 31 December 1993 was determined within the Cancer Registry's files and compared with national incidence rates. Women with early-onset breast cancer were at a nearly fourfold increased risk of developing a new cancer later in life (268 observed vs. 68.9 expected). The excess risk was most evident for second cancer of the breast (181 vs. 24.5) and for ovarian cancer (20 vs. 3.3). For mothers and sisters, risks for cancers of the breast and ovary were significantly increased by two- to threefold. Bilateral breast cancer and breast-ovarian cancer were very strong predictors of familial risks, with one in four female relatives predicted to develop breast and/or ovarian cancer by age 75. Mothers had a slightly increased risk of colon cancer, but not endometrial cancer. The risk for breast cancer was also increased among fathers (standardized incidence ratio 2.5; 95% CI 0.5-7.4) and especially brothers (29; 7.7-74), although based on small numbers. The risk for prostatic cancer was unremarkable. In this large population-based survey, the first-degree relatives of women who developed breast cancer before age 40 were prone to ovarian cancer as well as male and female breast cancer, but not other tumours that may share susceptibility genes with breast cancer.  (+info)

Androgen receptor expression in male breast carcinoma: lack of clinicopathological association. (2/361)

Androgen receptor (AR) expression was retrospectively analysed in 47 primary male breast carcinomas (MBCs) using a monoclonal antibody on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues. AR immunopositivity was detected in 16 out of 47 (34%) cases. No association was found with patient age, tumour stage, progesterone receptor (PGR) or p53 protein expression. Well-differentiated MBCs tended to be AR positive more often than poorly differentiated ones (P = 0.08). A negative association was found between ARs and cell proliferative activity: MIB-1 scores were higher (25.4%) in AR-negative than in AR-positive cases (21.11%; P = 0.04). A strong positive association (P = 0.0001) was found between ARs and oestrogen receptors (ERs). In univariate analysis, ARs (as well as ERs and PGRs) were not correlated with overall survival; tumour histological grade (P = 0.02), size (P = 0.01), p53 expression (P = 0.0008) and MIB-1 scores (P = 0.0003) had strong prognostic value. In multivariate survival analysis, only p53 expression (P = 0.002) and histological grade (P = 0.02) retained independent prognostic significance. In conclusion, the lack of association between AR and most clinicopathological features and survival, together with the absence of prognostic value for ER/PGR status, suggest that MBCs are biologically different from female breast carcinomas and make it questionable to use antihormonal therapy for patients with MBC.  (+info)

High frequency of germ-line BRCA2 mutations among Hungarian male breast cancer patients without family history. (3/361)

To determine the contribution of BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations to the pathogenesis of male breast cancer in Hungary, the country with the highest male breast cancer mortality rates in continental Europe, a series of 18 male breast cancer patients and three patients with gynecomastia was analyzed for germ-line mutations in both BRCA1 and BRCA2. Although no germ-line BRCA1 mutation was observed, 6 of the 18 male breast cancer cases (33%) carried truncating mutations in the BRCA2 gene. Unexpectedly, none of them reported a family history for breast/ovarian cancer. Four of six truncating mutations were novel, and two mutations were recurrent. Four patients (22%) had a family history of breast/ovarian cancer in at least one first- or second-degree relative; however, no BRCA2 mutation was identified among them. No mutation was identified in either of the genes in the gynecomastias. These results provide evidence for a strong genetic component of male breast cancer in Hungary.  (+info)

Breast cancer risk in ataxia telangiectasia (AT) heterozygotes: haplotype study in French AT families. (4/361)

Epidemiological studies in ataxia telangiectasia (AT) families have suggested that AT heterozygotes could have an increased cancer risk, especially breast cancer (BC) in women. It has also been suggested that an increased sensibility of AT heterozygotes to the effect of ionizing radiation could be responsible for the increased BC risk. BC relative risk (RR) estimation in AT heterozygotes within families ascertained through AT children is presented here. Family data collected included demographic characteristics, occurrence of cancers, past radiation exposures and blood samples. DNA samples were studied using seven ATM linked microsatellites markers allowing AT haplotypes reconstitution. The relative risk of BC was assessed using French estimated incidence rates. A significant increase risk of BC is found among obligate ATM heterozygotes with a point estimate of 3.32 (P = 0.002). BC relative risk calculated according to age is significantly increased among the obligate ATM heterozygotes female relatives with an age < or = 44 years (RR = 4.55, P = 0.005). The BC relative risk is statistically borderline among the obligate ATM heterozygote female relatives with an age > or = 45 years (RR = 2.48, P = 0.08). The estimated BC relative risk among ATM heterozygotes is consistent with previously published data. However, the increased risk is only a little higher than classical reproductive risk factors and similar to the risk associated with a first-degree relative affected by BC.  (+info)

Autotransplants in men with breast cancer. ABMTR Breast Cancer Working Committee. Autologous Blood and Marrow Transplant Registry. (5/361)

The purpose of this study was to determine the outcome of high-dose therapy with autologous hematopoietic stem cell support (autotransplants) in men with breast cancer. We studied 13 men receiving autotransplants for breast cancer and reported to the Autologous Blood and Marrow Transplant Registry (ABMTR) by 10 centers. Six men had stage 2 breast cancer, four had stage 3, and three had metastatic breast cancer. Of twelve tumors tested, all were estrogen receptor positive. Median age at transplant was 50 years. The most common conditioning regimen was cyclophosphamide, thiotepa and carboplatin (n = 5); the remaining eight men received other alkylator-based regimens. Three men received bone marrow, eight received blood stem cells, and two received both for hematopoietic support. All patients had hematopoietic recovery. There were no unexpected regimen-related toxicities. Of 10 men receiving autotransplants as adjuvant therapy, three relapsed 3, 5 and 50 months post-transplant and died 16, 19 and 67 months post-transplant. Seven of 10 are disease-free with median follow-up of 23 months (range 6-50 months). Of three men treated for metastatic breast cancer, one had progressive disease and two recurrent disease at 6, 7 and 16 months post-transplant. In conclusion, results of autotransplants for male breast cancer appear similar to those reported for women receiving autotransplants for breast cancer.  (+info)

A predictive model for relapse in high-risk primary breast cancer patients treated with high-dose chemotherapy and autologous stem-cell transplant. (7/361)

High-dose chemotherapy (HDCT) is currently under evaluation for high-risk primary breast cancer (HRPBC), defined by extensive axillary nodal involvement or inflammatory breast carcinoma. Phase II studies of HDCT for HRPBC show that 30-40% of patients eventually relapse. We retrospectively reviewed 176 patients enrolled in clinical trials of HDCT for HRPBC at the University of Colorado and analyzed 23 potential predictive variables for relapse. All of the patients received the same regimen, with cyclophosphamide, cisplatin, and BCNU. Nine patients who experienced a toxic death were excluded from this analysis. The resulting predictive model was subsequently tested in an independent patient set treated at Duke University with the same HDCT regimen. Nodal ratio (number of involved nodes:number of sampled nodes), tumor size, grade, stage, estrogen receptor, progesterone receptor, and clinical inflammatory breast carcinoma correlated with risk of relapse. Nodal ratio, tumor size, and the combined estrogen receptor/progesterone receptor status were independent predictors. A scoring system using those three variables determines the risk of relapse, with a sensitivity and specificity of 60 and 90%, respectively, and a positive and negative predictive value of 65 and 88%, respectively. The differences in relapse-free survival and overall survival between high- and low-score patients were highly significant (P<0.000001). This model was subsequently validated in the Duke patient set. This model can identify two subgroups of HRPBC patients with low (12%) and high (65%) risk for recurrence after HDCT. Future research that tests new therapies will focus on those patients with a high score.  (+info)

Risk estimation as a decision-making tool for genetic analysis of the breast cancer susceptibility genes. EC Demonstration Project on Familial Breast Cancer. (8/361)

For genetic counselling of a woman on familial breast cancer, an accurate evaluation of the probability that she carries a germ-line mutation is needed to assist in making decisions about genetic-testing. We used data from eight collaborating centres comprising 618 families (346 breast cancer only, 239 breast or ovarian cancer) recruited as research families or counselled for familial breast cancer, representing a broad range of family structures. Screening was performed in affected women from 618 families for germ-line mutations in BRCA1 and in 176 families for BRCA2 mutations, using different methods including SSCP, CSGE, DGGE, FAMA and PTT analysis followed by direct sequencing. Germ-line BRCA1 mutations were detected in 132 families and BRCA2 mutations in 16 families. The probability of being a carrier of a dominant breast cancer gene was calculated for the screened individual under the established genetic model for breast cancer susceptibility, first, with parameters for age-specific penetrances for breast cancer only [7] and, second, with age-specific penetrances for ovarian cancer in addition [20]. Our results indicate that the estimated probability of carrying a dominant breast cancer gene gives a direct measure of the likelihood of detecting mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2. For breast/ovarian cancer families, the genetic model according to Narod et al. [20] is preferable for calculating the proband's genetic risk, and gives detection rates that indicate a 50% sensitivity of the gene test. Due to the incomplete BRCA2 screening of the families, we cannot yet draw any conclusions with respect to the breast cancer only families.  (+info)

In contrast, ALND remains the standard of care tor male breast patients with similar tumors. We evaluated the results of SLNB in male breast cancer patients with clinically negative axillas. METHODS: The patient population consisted of six consecutive male breast cancer patients, ages 44 to 76 years old, treated at our institution. All patients had negative axillas by clinical exam and ultrasound. Preoperative lymphoscintigraphy was used in all cases. In each patient, 5 cc of isosulfan blue 1% was injected intraoperatively adjacent to the breast tumor or biopsy cavity prior to SLNB. Additionally, Tc-99m sulfur colloid was injected at ...
Although male breast cancer is rarely discussed, it is not exceedingly rare. On average, for every hundred females diagnosed with breast cancer, there will be one male diagnosed with breast cancer. Approximately 2,000 cases of male breast cancer are diagnosed yearly in the USA, compared to approximately 200,000 cases of female breast cancer diagnosed per year. The incidence of male breast cancer is increasing in the USA, probably because of increasing life expectancy.. Male breast cancer can occur over a wide range of ages, but are most common in the 60s and 70s, and are rare before the age of 50. Male breast cancer typically presents as lumps, but on occasion […]. ...
Breast cancer in men is a rare disease with approximately 0.5- 1% of all breast cancer cases. Each year, about 400 to 450 cases are diagnosed in Germany. Men tend to present with more advanced disease than women, probably due to the lack of awareness of male breast cancer from both, the patient and the physicians.. Therefore, at presentation they usually have lump or nipple inversion, and more than 40% of the patients have a stage III or IV disease. The great majority of patients have an invasive ductal (90%), hormone receptor positive (90%), HER2 negative (90%) tumor.. The only available information on adjuvant therapies derives from few retrospective cases and retrospective studies with a little number of cases. Therefore, treatment strategies are not based on data from prospective, randomised clinical studies, and optimal treatment is unknown. As a result, current clinical management is generally extrapolated from principles established for the treatment of female breast carcinoma. As the ...
Breast cancer is rare in men, but management is focused on tumor characteristics commonly found in female breast cancer. The tumor microenvironment of male breast cancer is less well understood, and insight may improve male breast cancer management. The hepatocyte growth factor (HGF)/c-MET axis and the stromal cell-derived factor-1 (CXCL12)/C-X-C chemokine receptor type 4 (CXCR4) axis are prognostic in women with breast cancer. We aimed to investigate these factors in male breast cancer and correlate them with patient survival. From 841 Dutch males with breast cancer who were enrolled in the EORTC 10085/TBCRC/BIG/NABCG International Male Breast Cancer Program (NCT01101425) and diagnosed between 1990 and 2010, archival primary tumor samples were collected. Tissue microarrays were constructed with 3 cores per sample and used for immunohistochemical analysis of HGF, c-MET, CXCL12, and CXCR4. Overall survival (OS) of the patients without metastases (M0) was analyzed using the Kaplan-Meier method. The value
In men with node-negative tumors, adjuvant therapy should be considered on the same basis as for women with breast cancer because there is no evidence that response to therapy is different between men and women. [11]. In men with node-positive tumors, both chemotherapy plus tamoxifen and other hormonal therapy have been used and are believed to increase survival to the same extent as in women with breast cancer.. Approximately 85% of all male breast cancers are estrogen receptor-positive, and 70% of them are progesterone receptor-positive. [2] [12] Response to hormone therapy correlates with the presence of these receptors. Hormonal therapy has been recommended in all patients with receptor-positive cancers. [1] [2] Tamoxifen use, however, is associated with a high rate of treatment-limiting symptoms, such as hot flashes and impotence, in male breast cancer patients. [13] Responses are generally similar to those seen in women with breast cancer. [2] (Refer to Postoperative Systemic Therapy and ...

The aim of this thesis was to investigate the prognostic role of the proliferation markers cyclin B1 and Phosphorylated Histone 3 (PPH3) in breast cancer (BC).. In paper I we used an experimental study design, we compared women dying early from their BC with women free from relapse more than eight years after initial diagnosis. All women had stage I, node-negative and hormone receptor positive disease. None had received adjuvant chemotherapy. We found that low-risk node negative patients with high expression of cyclin B1 had a significantly worse outcome than patients with low expression of cyclin B1.. In paper II a population-based case control study was performed to further investigate the prognostic value of cyclin B1. One hundred and ninety women who died from BC were defined as cases and 190 women alive at the time for the corresponding cases death were defined as controls. Inclusion criteria were tumor size 50 mm, no lymph node metastases, and no adjuvant chemotherapy. Two investigators ...

Breast cancer represents less than 1% of all cancers in men1; the male to female ratio is 1:100.2 Since 1973 there has been a gradual increase in the incidence of male breast cancer, the reasons for which are unclear. Nonetheless the overall incidence remains low, at about 1 case per 100,000 population per year.3 Unlike women, where breast cancer displays a bimodal distribution, the disease in men increases exponentially with age. The median age at presentation for male breast cancer is 65 to 71, unlike with women, in whom breast cancer is seen about 5 to 10 years earlier.4 The epidemiology of breast cancer in men is similar to that in women, such that North America and Europe see the highest incidences, while Japan has the lowest.5 Interestingly, in sub-Saharan countries in Africa where infectious liver damage is common, such as in Zambia6 and Uganda,7 7% to 14% of breast cancer cases occur in men. In the United States, tumor registries indicate that male breast cancer is most common in African ...
Radiation exposure is a known risk factor for many cancers, including breast cancer. Repeated or lengthy exposure to diagnostic radiographs or radiation therapy increases the risk of male breast cancer (24). A recent paper (25) which examined male incidence and mortality of breast cancer in atomic bomb survivors found a much higher radiation-associated relative risk for male than for female breast cancer.. There is increasing evidence that male breast cancer is associated with exposure to environmental pollutants, including carcinogens and endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), especially oestrogen mimicking chemicals (26), which induce similar actions to those of oestrogen and have been linked to increased breast cancer risk and other health problems, including prostate cancer. For further details about EDCs and breast cancer risk read our Background Briefing on endocrine disrupting chemicals.. Certain occupations may also carry a higher risk of breast cancer. For example, motor vehicle ...

According to Cancer Research UK, a cell needs to have a number of mistakes in its genetic code before it becomes cancerous. Between 45 and 90 out of every 100 women carrying BRCA genes will get breast cancer at some point in their lives. Lifetime risk can be quite difficult to understand. 1 in 8 women in the UK will develop breast cancer during their lifetime. In men, breast cancer is very rare. The same treatments are used for breast cancer in men as for women. As with women, the single biggest risk factor for male breast cancer is getting older. Most cases are diagnosed in men between the ages of 60 and 70. There are significant differences between male and female breast cancer: almost half of male breast cancer patients are stage III or IV. Iron is essential for an array of key biological processes including erythrocyte production, DNA synthesis and cellular respiration. Women are not able to store iron as efficiently as men.

Propecia May Cause Male Breast Cancer. If you took Finasteride and were diagnosed with male breast cancer, this drug may be to blame.
Male breast cancer (male breast neoplasm) is a rare cancer in males that originates from the breast. Many males with breast cancer have inherited a BRCA mutation, but there are other causes, including alcohol abuse and exposure to certain hormones and ionizing radiation. As it presents a similar pathology as female breast cancer, assessment and treatment relies on experiences and guidelines that have been developed in female patients. The optimal treatment is currently not known. As in females, infiltrating ductal carcinoma is the most common type. While intraductal cancer, inflammatory carcinoma, and Pagets disease of the nipple have been described, lobular carcinoma in situ has not been seen in males. Breast cancer in males spreads via lymphatics and blood stream like female breast cancer. Accordingly, the TNM staging system for breast cancer is the same for males and females. Size of the lesion and lymph node involvement determine prognosis; thus small lesions without lymph node involvement ...

Male breast cancer (MBC) represents a poorly characterised group of tumours, the management of which is largely based on practices established for female breast cancer. However, recent studies demonstrate biological and molecular differences likely to impact on tumour behaviour and therefore patient outcome. The aim of this study was to investigate methylation of a panel of commonly methylated breast cancer genes in familial MBCs. 60 tumours from 3 BRCA1 and 25 BRCA2 male mutation carriers and 32 males from BRCAX families were assessed for promoter methylation by methylation-sensitive high resolution melting in a panel of 10 genes (RASSF1A, TWIST1, APC, WIF1, MAL, RARβ, CDH1, RUNX3, FOXC1 and GSTP1). An average methylation index (AMI) was calculated for each case comprising the average of the methylation of the 10 genes tested as an indicator of overall tumour promoter region methylation. Promoter hypermethylation and AMI were correlated with BRCA carrier mutation status and clinicopathological

It happens to one in every 1,000 men.. Those arent high odds, but the diagnosis can still be devastating. One of every 1,000 men will develop breast cancer in his lifetime, and the chances of making a full recovery rest in large part in how quickly the cancer is discovered and how soon appropriate treatment is begun.. Male or female, everyone begins his or her life with a small amount of breast tissue, consisting of milk-producing glands, ducts that carry milk to the nipples, and fat. But during puberty, women develop additional breast tissue, while men do not. Still, that breast tissue is present for life.. Not surprisingly, most men dont dwell on the thought that they could develop breast cancer. But it can happen.

To test the hypothesis that in utero exposure to high levels of oestrogen increases the risk of male breast cancer, we followed 115 235 male twins for more than 3.5 million person-years at risk. We observed 11 cases of male breast cancer versus 16.16 expected based on national rates (standardized rate ratio 0.68, 95% confidence interval 0.34-1.22) and conclude that any adverse influence of in utero oestrogen exposure is likely to be small.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Male breast carcinoma and gynecomastia. T2 - Comparison of mammography with sonography. AU - Jackson, Valerie. AU - Gilmor, R. L.. PY - 1983. Y1 - 1983. N2 - Both ultrasonography and x-ray mammography were performed on a male patient who had breast carcinoma. While the x-ray mammographic features were highly suggestive of malignancy, the sonographic findings were subtle. Because of the technical difficulties associated with x-ray mammography of the male breast, ultrasound has been advocated for the evaluation of gynecomastia and breast masses in men. A review of both the ultrasound scans and x-ray mammograms obtained over a three year period of 41 men who had breast enlargement shows the two modalities to be complementary. There was overlap in the appearance of benign and malignant disease on images of each modality alone, and the use of both modalities in the examination of each patient is believed to improve diagnostic accuracy.. AB - Both ultrasonography and x-ray mammography ...

BACKGROUND: Male breast cancer (MBC) is rare. The objective of the study is to report clinicopathological characteristics, treatment patterns, and outcomes of MBC. METHODS: This study, which includes two parts (retrospective and prospective), focused on all hospitalized male patients with breast cancer during 17 years (1992 2008) with histological confirmation. RESULTS: The series included 22 patients. The mean age was 52.8 years (range: 28 80 years). MBC represented 5.7% of all breast cancers. Most patients had an advanced disease with skin ulceration and inflammation T3 (31.9%) and T4 (59.1%). The majority of patients came from rural areas (63.6%). The duration of signs ranged from 1 to 7 years. Histology found infiltrating ductal carcinoma in 14 cases (63.6%), sarcoma in 3 cases (13.6%), papillary carcinoma in 2 cases (9%), and lobular carcinoma, medullar carcinoma, and mucinous carcinoma in 4.6% each of the others cases.

February 2010. Prescribers are advised that case reports of breast cancer have been reported in male patients following the use of finasteride.. Finasteride is a specific inhibitor of type II 5α-reductase, an intracellular enzyme that metabolises testosterone into the more potent androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT).1.

Dear Patient,. In this leaflet I aim to explain gynaecomastia and its management in a simple understandable manner.. Gynaecomastia means the enlargement of the normally occurring male breast tissue to such an extent that it may resemble the female breast.. Gynecomastia is far more common than you may think. 65% of boys develop transient breast tissue during puberty and 40% of males over the age of 65 years have some degree of gynaecomastia. Both breasts are usually affected although they may not be the same size.. The condition may have a serious psychological effect on the individual as they fear being ridiculed by their peers and self-conscious about their physical appearance.. The cause of gynaecomastia is an alteration in the testosterone: oestrogen ratio. The excess oestrogen results in a female fat distribution which leads to the development of breast tissue. In 25% of cases there may be no known cause for the development of breast tissue.. Common causes include but is not limited to the ...

NEC of the breast is a rare disease. Only 6 case series have been reported in the literature, the largest comprising 74 cases [6-11]. With the 142 SEER cases reported here, this is the largest series reported to date and the first population study of mammary NEC.. The incidence of NEC of the breast has not been reported. Although NEC was estimated in 2003 to represent 2-5% of breast carcinomas [13], we found from our analysis of SEER data released in April 2012 that the incidence of mammary NEC is much lower. The age-adjusted incidence is 0.41 per 1 million-years in the female population of the U.S., and NEC comprises ,0.1% of all mammary carcinomas. Despite the low incidence of male breast carcinomas overall, the SEER data showed that NEC was proportionally more common in men than IMC-NOS (2.1% of all NEC; 0.8% of all IMC-NOS).. Because mammary NEC has not been well studied, its clinicopathologic features and outcome are poorly characterized. Among the 6 reported series studies, 2 studies with ...

Gynecomastia is a condition of male breast enlargement due to disproportion of estrogen-to-androgen ratio. True gynecomastia is usually differentiated from excessive adipose tissue deposition with the firm consistency and its tenderness upon palpation.
