I'm a newcomer to the disease. About a month ago, I discovered a lump right under the nipple on my left breast while showering. I was doctoring for pneumonia at the time, so mentioned it to a nurse, who made an immediate appointment with my doctor. She also moved fast and got me lined up for a mammogram and an appointment with a breast cancer surgeon the next week. The mammogram and ultrasound were inconclusive, but the excisional biopsy brought up a .7 cm tumor. Two weeks later, I had a lumpectomy and a sentinal node biopsy.


Two nodes found positive and now will see oncologists next week to set up radiation and chemo. Any advice from fellow travellers would be much appreciated. What I hope to find (probably does not exist) is a center which has done research specific to male breast cancer that might come up with more specific info than that the woman's treatment "seems" to be the same as the man's. Anybody out there who could help? thanks. FrankFrank J. Cody

 I had a mastectomy and lymphnodes removed on my right side in 1995, at the age of 63. Was on Tamoxifan for 5 years. Found out I have metastic breast cancer in my bones about 2 years ago. It is now in my liver too. I am taking chemo for the liver. Not much we can do about the bones. I have several Pink Ribbons, and look foreward to people to ask why I wear it. Men in particular. There are so many that dont know we can get it. If you find a lump, run, dont walk to your doctor. This is a great web site. Found it due to a story on male breast on a local TV news show.Noel Johnson University Place, WA USA - Wednesday, June 11, 2003 at 15:33:35

I was diagnosed and treated for male breast cancer in May '00. I have been taking ARIMIDEX (no noticeable side effects)since Sep '00, and continue to be cancer-free. My best wishes to all those guys and gals doing this breast cancer thing. Thanks, Nancy for keeping this website up and running. Still one of the best places for scarce info on male breast cancer.

 Thanks for spreading the information, I'm a student in college doing a research paper on breast cancer and I will definitely pass this information on to my classmates to raise their awareness of breast cancer in men. Sorry for the tragedies that all of you have faced. Anna Morton KY USA - Tuesday, April 29, 2003 at 16:45:15


​ Thank you for the very worthy information. If not for you I would not be alive today.Robert Nash


 Hello: I am doing a research paper on male breast cancer and would like some help finding additional information. I was very surprised after going to an oncology clinic in the county where I live only to find that there was no literature available on this subject. I am a medical professional who feels that this is a subject that needs a lot more recognition and feel that men should know that this disease can affects them also.Kathy Tidwell Miramar, Fl USA - Friday, November 28, 2003 at 14:25:37  


My dad has been diagnosed, for a second time with breast cancer today. He first was diagnosed 2 yrs ago. He had his left breast completely removed and went through 6 treatments of chemo. Now it is back. I want to educate myself on this disease for men. Can you send me any literature? I would greatly appreciate it. Crystal

 I thought that I should give an update on my Breast cancer. My story is posted on this site in the "personal Stories" link at: http://www.johnwnickfoundation.org/Lyons.ivnu It has been over 5 years and still clean. I have stopped taking Tamaxifin but still having some depression and occasional hot flashes. I have been SLOWLY tapering off the Paxil, and expect to get off it eventually. Keep praying that a cure will be found. PS The site looks good, Nancy!!Dave Lyons OR USA - Tuesday, May 27, 2003 at 16:49:56 


This is a wonderful website! I have found more information on this one site than numerous other sites I have been to. Thank you so much for all your hard work! John.us government grant

A small hard mass noticed under the nipple of the right breast. I did not know whether to be concerned, I am diabetic, kidney and liver failure, on dialysis, congested heart failure and legally blind. Yet still if I bring something new up they always want to just pass it off. So I came to your site to see what I could find out and if I should be concerned. I thank you. Ernest Williams
