Abstract: Male breast cancer accounts for 1% of all breast cancer cases, and men tend to be diagnosed at an older age than women (mean age is about 67 years). Several risk factors have been identified, such as genetic and hormonal abnormalities.The present study reported the case of a 25-year-old man who was diagnosed with an advanced invasive ductal carcinoma; however, he did not have any important risk factors.Even though more data is emerging about this disease, more efforts to understand risk factors, treatment options and survival benefits are needed. in this case, we discussed the risk factors as well as the impaired fertility associated with breast cancer therapies.
