7 Rare But Real Men's Diseases
Dr. Gittens interviewed by Everyday Health on Male Breast Cancer for the article 7 Rare But Real Men's Diseases:
"As with women, a diagnosis can be done with a mammogram or sonogram," says Paul Gittens, MD, an assistant professor and the director of sexual dysfunction, male fertility, and andrology at Montefiore Medical Center and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City and director and founder of the Philadelphia Center for Sexual Medicine. "Men have a lifetime risk of approximately one in 1,000, according to Breastcancer.org, with most cases occurring after age 60."
"Risk factors include family history, radiation exposure, high levels of estrogen, and some genetic conditions," Dr. Gittens says.
