Grade 1 invasive ductal carcinoma in a male

Posted by tlc2167 @tlc2167, Jan 12 8:22am

My husband just got his biopsy results back. Grade 1 invasive ductal carcinoma. Any information would be helpful.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Breast Cancer Support Group.

Do you have ER/PR scores or HER2 results yet?

I looked up treatment for men:
Systemic (drug) therapy is the main treatment for stage IV breast cancer in men. Depending on many factors, this may be hormone therapy , chemo , targeted therapy, immunotherapy, or some combination of these treatments.


Surprisingly, it looks like treatment for men often resembles the treatment for women. I do wonder what surgery is possible though. And was surprised to read that hormone responsiveness (estrogen and progesterone) is also considered for men.
