Bet you didn’t know that huh? Well, it’s time to learn a little more about how your pecs can possibly kill you.

All men possess lobules, which are glands that can produce milk in the right hormonal conditions. They also have similar ducts, fatty tissue and connective tissue . The only difference between men and women is that during puberty, a male body does not further develop its lobules, or any other tissue in the chest region. This point is important, as it is the key decider in your risk of contracting breast cancer.

However, the chances of you getting breast cancer is 100 times lower than a female, precisely because your breast duct cells are less developed than those of a woman. Essentially, your lifetime risk of breast cancer is 1 in 1000, so you’re pretty safe.

However, if you are exhibiting the following symptoms, it’s probably time to go get check out by a medical professional:

  • Discharge from the nipple that may or may not be blood-stained
  • Abnormal swelling of your chest
  • An ulcer in the skin of your breast
  • Nipple retraction
  • Underarm lumps

Remember guys, if you are exhibiting these symptoms, there’s nothing to be embarrassed about. It’s what you were born with, and you should seek help immediately.
