Moses Musonga, 67-year-old Kenyan, expressed shock at being diagnosed with male breast cancer. The former college lecturer said he thought breast cancer was only for women. He was in complete denial until he finally came to terms with his condition. He wondered why the disease would single him out of all the millions of men in the world.

Little did he know that that thousands of men around the world have breast cancer.

For Musonga, it started with a breast lump in his right nipple. It was painless at first, but it soon grew painful with nipple discharge. Unsure of what the growth was, doctors prescribed painkillers which did little to treat the condition.

Rising Levels of Oestrogen in Men Raises Risks of Male Breast Cancer

The father of five however became concerned when his breasts grew in size and ulcerated. Medical specialist eventually became certain the growth was cancerous after tissue samples were analyzed in the hospital.

Dr. Sitna Mwanzi, a consultant oncologist at the Aga Khan University Hospital in Nairobi, revealed that male breast cancer is uncommon and why it affects men is unknown. She disclosed that one out of every 100 breast cancer cases affects men.

Statistics from the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer shows that about 170,000 cases of breast cancer will occur across Africa this year, with about 6,000 of these seen in Kenya.

Dr. Mwanzi noted that women develop breast cancer more than men because their body produces oestrogen.

“When you have an excess of oestrogen, it stimulates a formation of more breast tissue and with that some of the cells can become abnormal and lead to breast cancer,” she said.

The oncologist disclosed that men with high levels of oestrogen, coupled with other risk factors, are at risks of developing breast cancer. She said people should watch out for symptoms such as changes in shape or size in any of the breasts, bloody nipple discharge, breast and nipple skin changes among others.

Causative Factors and Treatment Options for Men with Male Breast Cancer

While women are often advised to check for lumps in their breasts at all times, men are also encouraged to do the same as often as possible.

According to Dr. Mwanzi, the most acceptable forms of treatment for breast cancer include –

  • Radiotherapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Hormone therapy
  • Surgery

Musonga said the treatment he is undertaking is painful since he has stage-three cancer. He said he can no long trek long distances without experiencing fatigue, loss of breath, nausea and vomiting. “The hair on my head was not shaved but was removed by chemicals,” he added.

The Kenyan said he feared that friends and neighbors would disdain and discriminate against him for his disease. But rather than being judgmental, people were curious that men could have breast cancer and they came around him to learn more about the condition.

Why men develop breast cancer is not known, but it is believed that certain risk factors could predispose men to have the disease. These include –

  • Inherited family genes of the faulty BRCA1 or BRCA2 versions
  • Exposure to radiotherapy, especially unknown radiation to the chest
  • Cirrhosis, obesity and Klinefelter syndrome among other conditions that raise the level of oestrogen in the body
