... 1) No. Male breast cancer is diagnosed in later stages precisely because patient/provider wait too long (embarrassment factor?). Seek a second opinion - from a breast specialist (yah, there IS such an animal) and trust me, while women make up the majority of their patients, they see men, too!

... Yes, bc is more rare for men that women. I would ask your doctor for a second opinion. Being that you are not able to have a mamogram, they usually do an ultrasound.
