Dear JBallard: Breast cancer in men is uncommon, but possible. It usually presents as a hard lump in the breast. If the lump has not changed in 4 years, it is unlikely to be cancer but it should be evaluated by your doctor if it is causing you discomfort or concern.
I did go to a surgeon a few years ago and he said it appeared to be gynocamastia, but all he done was felt it. Does breast cancer have a distinguishing feel or should I get more indepth testing. I sometimes feel pressure behind my nipple but I can completely move the mass around. I was just kinda worried becuase now I am having alot of joint pain didn't know what else could be causing it. Thanks for the info.
Tell your doctor you want it removed, that way you know for sure and you can forget about it,
I was just wondering if you can diagnose it not been breast cancer just by feeling the mass. Does breast cancer have a specific feel or or shape. I have not had any other test. He told me that it was very uncommon for men to get but I have been having severe joint pain and bone pain. I can move the skin over the mass back and fourth and move the mass itself back and fourth. I just need a description of a breast cancer mass I guess. I also work on a computer all day and have been having a pulling feeling under my arm when I put my elbow against my body on the same side as the mass.Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
