Current clinical trials for breast cancer in men

A lot of information about breast cancer in men is based on research carried out in women with breast cancer. Because breast cancer in men is very rare, it’s difficult to run large clinical trials that can collect lots of information and study the effects of treatments. A group of specialists have formed an international study about breast cancer in men. This study will pool current information on risks, causes and treatments as well as gather tumour samples.
