Although breast cancer is common in women, even men suffer from the same. Men also have breast tissues and cancer starts when these tissues start to grow out of control. The breast ducts and glands present in men are not functional, but cancer in these areas can spread when cancer cells enter the blood or lymph system and are carried in the whole body. Men who have suffered from cancer before and undergone radiation therapy are at a high risk of suffering from male breast cancer.
The rising geriatric population and an increasingly obese population resulting in high levels of estrogen in males are expected to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period. According to an article published by the National Cancer Institute in April 2018, most of the men who suffer from breast cancer are 60 to 70 years old. Additionally, the rising healthcare expenditure is likely to boost the market growth. On the other hand, lack of knowledge of the disease and high cost of treatment may hinder the growth of the market during the forecast period.
The global male breast cancer treatment market is expected to grow slowly at a CAGR of ~ 3.6% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2023. Male breast cancer is caused when the breast tissues of males start growing out of control and become cancerous.
Numerous factors such as increasing obese population and growing geriatric population are expected to drive the growth of the market. For instance, in July 2017, the Bristol-Myers Squibb Company announced a broad clinical collaboration with Clovis Oncology for evaluating the combination of cancer drugs Nivolumab and Rucaparib in Phase 2 and Phase 3 clinical trials in multiple tumor types.
Moreover, favorable healthcare expenditures boost the growth of the market. However, lack of knowledge and the high cost of treatments may hamper the market growth during the assessment period.
