To reduce your risk of male breast cancer you can:

  • Drink alcohol in moderation, if at all. Limit yourself to a drink or two a day, if you choose to drink alcohol.
  • Maintain a healthy weight. If your weight is healthy, work to maintain it by exercising most days of the week. If you're overweight or obese, work to lose weight slowly. Ask your doctor about strategies to lose weight. Combine a healthy diet full of fruits and vegetables with increased exercise.
