Men are referred for breast imaging when they have a palpable mass or breast enlargement that may or may not be associated with pain and tenderness.

The majority of breast findings in males are benign, with gynecomastia being the most common finding. Male breast cancer represents less than 0.5% of all breast cancers.1
