Dr. Oz Breast Cancer In Men Know The Warning SignsBreast Cancer in Men - high estrogen and low testosterone levels play a major role in male breast cancer because men who have abnormalities involving the testicles and problems with fertility are at higher risk for the disease. Men are not exempt from inheriting (or passing down to their children) breast cancer susceptibility genes such as BRCA1 and BRCA2, a factor in many breast cancers that run in families.
What Raises the Risk in Men? - Know The Symptoms And How To Look For Lumps In Men
Robert told his story on his fight and surviving Breast Cancer. He found a lump under his left nipple and never mentioned it to his Doctor until 2 years later. He had a sonogram, mammogram, and needle biopsy and was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, and had to undergo a radical mastectomy, chemotherapy and 36 treatments of radiation, and is now cancer free. He went on to say no believes men can get breast cancer.
Dr. Oz described what a lump would feel like by taking a chickpea and putting it under a sponge. When you press down on the sponge and feel the pea, it is what it a lump should feel like upon a self breast examination.
Risk Factors For Men's Breast Cancer
1. Klinefelter’s Syndrome – A genetic disease where men have an extra X (female) chromosome causes higher estrogen and lower testosterone levels.
2. Liver Cirrhosis– Since the liver is involved with the metabolism of sex hormones, damage (via infection or alcohol use) increases estrogen levels.
3. Overweight – Fat cells convert male sex hormones into estrogen so being overweight and inactive can increase estrogen.
4. Genetic – Men who have female family members who have the breast cancer gene, particularly if they test postive for BRCA or other breast cancer susceptibility genes, are at much higher risk.
5. Radiation exposure –Radiation treatments received for other conditions can produce changes to breast cells if the rays are required to go through the chest.
What Men Should Look For
Lumps, bumps or swelling in the breast or underarms
Nipple retraction, puckering or indentation
Bleeding or discharge from the nipple
Redness, scaling or itching of the skin
Breast cancer in men is diagnosed using mammography, ultrasound and biopsy. Treatments include surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

He went to talk about your height, weight, wrist size (our wrist is less than 6 inches, you could be at risk) as a cut of point for Osteoporosis. Smoking, alcohol - drinking in younger women, and depression.
Dr. Oz insisted on not taking calcium by itself, and said to take Calcium With Vitamin D, and Vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 is the main vitamin that is responsible together with Vitamin D with building up bone strength and found in fermented foods and beverages called Kefir.
