In ancient China, there were also records of men getting breast cancer.
The typical case happened on a candidate for the imperial examination- the equivalence of the modern Civil Servant Examination, but is more competitive and held every three years.
When he repeatedly failed the exam over the years, small lumps would start to form around his nipples, then break, and followed by discharge of the yellow liquid. Eventually, it would develop into breast cancer.
The mechanism of men getting breast cancer is similar to that of women, except it is not caused by refluent milk, but semen, back into the breasts. Men’s physiological circulatory system is opposite to that of women, which will be explained in the future.
