Breast cancer in male gender is rare with an incidence of 1 % of all breast cancers. There are many theories and risk factors that play a role in the development of breast cancer among males. The development of a second primary cancer is also rare. Herein we have a case of a male breast cancer that devolved after a 20 years of treated testicular cancer.
