Abstract: We experienced a case of HER2-positive male breast cancer with a poor prognosis. A 64-year-old man visited our hospital due to general malaise, a left breast mass, and neck edema. The patient was diagnosed with HER2-positive breast cancer after needle histology. Weekly paclitaxel and trastuzumab therapy was started. However, the patient experienced lightheadedness and dizziness, and developed brain metastasis. After whole-brain irradiation, the condition worsened, and the patient died. HER2 type male breast cancer has a poor prognosis. There are many cases that are difficult to diagnose, but it is necessary to tak e immediate measures such as treatment decisions.

Abstract: African American women have a greater number of aggressive cancer treatments and higher incidence of Breast Cancer-Related Lymphedema (BCRLE) than Caucasians. BCRLE cannot be cured and the treatment requires patients to make considerable lifestyle changes and maintain daily and lifelong care to decrease the swelling and prevent exacerbations.
