  1. Review article : epidemiology of male breast cancer. A meta-analysis of published case-control studies and discussion of selected aetiological factors.

    Article - En anglais

    Male breast cancer is a rare tumour in all parts of the world.

    About 1% of all breast cancers occur in men, but the male/female ratio is higher among black than among white populations.

    This effect can be seen in US cancer registries and even more markedly in African data.

    A positive correlation exists on a population scale between male breast cancer and prostate cancer.

    Seven case-control studies of male breast cancer are available, and a pooled analysis was conducted of the most commonly suspected risk factors.
