Synchronous bilateral ductal carcinoma in situ of the male breast associated with gynecomastia in a 30-year-old patient following repeated injections of stanozolol


Staerkle, Ralph F; Lenzlinger, Philipp M; Suter, Stephan L; Varga, Zsuzsanna; Melcher, Gian A; Melcher, A (2006). Synchronous bilateral ductal carcinoma in situ of the male breast associated with gynecomastia in a 30-year-old patient following repeated injections of stanozolol. Breast Cancer Research and Treatment, 97(2):173-176.

Abstract

We report a rare case of synchronous bilateral and multifocal ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) in a 30-year-old patient operated on for gynecomastia following repeated injections of stanozolol, a non-aromatizable androgen. The familial medical history was negative for breast cancer and work-up of serum hormone levels was normal. The patient underwent a modified radical mastectomy without axilla dissection 6 weeks following the primary procedure and recovered uneventfully. The role of synthetic androgens in the development of male breast neoplasia warrants further scrutiny.
