We present the case of a 76 year-old male with BRCA2 and a personal history of left-sided breast cancer who presented 20 years later with right-sided breast cancer found on screening mammography. The role of screening mammography and its relevance to males with breast cancer is poorly understood. There are currently no screening guidelines for male breast cancer. Further research is needed to determine the benefit of screening males at higher risk of developing breast cancer.
