2) In addition, male and female breast cancers differ in regards to expression of steroid hormone receptors (men are more likely to have estrogen and progesterone receptor positive tumors), (2) molecular markers (CerbB-2 and BCL-2 protooncogenes may have no prognostic significance in men, while in women it is associated with poor and favorable prognosis, respectively), (3) and genetics (as in women, men with BRCA-2 mutations are predisposed to develop breast cancer but BRCA-1 mutation does not seem to be a risk factor for breast cancer in men, although it has been described in affected men).
