Treatments used for men are similar to those used for breast cancer in women. These can include surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and targeted therapy with Herceptin. Your doctor will advise you on the best plan of treatment, taking into account a number of factors. These include:
- your general health
- the type of cancer
- the stage and grade of the cancer
- whether it is ER positive and/or HER2 positive, or triple-negative.
