Hello @skygazer and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Thank you for joining this discussion to share your husband's experience with breast cancer. While many men likely don't think that it can happen to them, it is great to hear your husband is advocating to get the word out to others to build that awareness.

What brought you to Mayo Clinic Connect?

Hello, I have a long-term fused hip due to congenital hip displasia and was evaluated at the Mayo Clinic some years ago for the possibility of a hip replacement and to get more info about the associated complexity and outcomes. I am familiar with the Mayo’s research on conversion of hip arthrodesis to hip replacement and orthopedic expertise. I joined Mayo Clinic Connect to see if there were people on here discussing the same issue, but I didn’t see a group for that as I think my case is kind of rare. There don’t seem to be many patients with the issue of hip fusion since nowadays I don’t think that is done very often any more. I saw the male breast cancer post by chance, and I couldn’t help but respond.
