Abstract: Carcinoma of the breast is very rare in childhood, accounting for less than 1% of all childhood malignancies and is especially rare in boys. Delay in diagnosis and treatment in children with breast cancer may occur because surgeons are very reluctant to perform biopsies on the developing breast, since these can cause future deformity. We report a case of male secretory breast carcinoma in a 13-year-old boy. Radical mastectomy was performed followed by chemotherapy. The patient is free of disease after 10 years. Secretory breast carcinoma (SBC) is the commonest type of breast carcinoma in children. In this article, we discuss the diagnosis and treatment options for breast cancer among children as well as features of SBC, based on a literature review. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
