Breast cancer is not common in males. The lump is likely to be;

1) Lipoma (if underneath the muscle, it would feel hard).

2) Lipofibroma

3) Dermoid

4) Fibroma.

An ultrasound or MRI would confirm the diagnosis. These medical imaging are essential for evaluation.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
