Male breast cancer in Armenia 1980-2000

Galstyan Hairapet M., Khachatouryan Irina A., Nersesyan Armen K.

We analyzed the incidence of male breast cancer in Armenia over the period of 20 years (1980-2000). The obtained data showed that, unlike female BC, male BC incidence also varies in Armenia as in most developed and developing countries, but without any regularity. The mean crude rate for the observed period is lower than in developed but comparable with developing countries. The most important peculiarity of male BC in Armenia is young age of patients.
