Breast cancer si not frequent in male sex (only 0.7 to 1 % of all cancers in men). Two cases of male breast cancer were recorded in a period of 5 years at "Abel Santamaria" University Hospital. Diagnostic and therapeutic aspects were analyzed considering a wide review of literature, concluding that this neoplasm has similar characteristics and prognosis in both sexes, but some results are published in male patients due to a delayed diagnosis with respect to female patients.
