Male Breast Cancer

University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center Provides Compassionate Care for Men with Breast Cancer

Diagnosed with male breast cancer? We understand the challenges and fear you face, and our skilled team can help you get back to a healthy life. While male breast cancer makes up less than 1 percent of all breast cancer cases, our fellowship-trained cancer doctors and support staff evaluate and review every single case for optimal treatment and recovery. Diagnosis and treatment decisions are based on the expertise of our breast cancer care team. And together, we work through every step of cancer care to provide a carefully thought-out, personalized treatment plan offering advanced care.

Aiming to Cure Male Breast Cancer

UH Seidman Cancer Center is part of the National Cancer Institute-designated Case Comprehensive Cancer Center at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, one of an elite group of 41 comprehensive cancer hospitals nationwide. As a nationally recognized cancer program, we have expertise in both routine and complex care for every stage of male breast cancer. Our leading-edge breast cancer specialists are highly trained cancer authorities who focus on advancing breast cancer treatments. We have access to the latest treatments before other hospitals, including:

  • Chemotherapy treatments specific to tumor type

Cancer Care for the Whole Person

Along with the latest advancements in male breast cancer care, we offer holistic support for the whole person with support groups, counseling, education, dietary advice, lifestyle tips and more. We believe the emotional side of the body must be treated as well as the physical illness for healing to take place.
