We hereby report the case of a 67-year-old male patient who underwent modified radical mastectomy because of invasive papillary carcinoma. The patient presented to our clinic with the complaint of a painless mass in his right breast. Tru-cut biopsy guided by imaging was performed. The pathological results of the biopsy were in line with invasive papillary carcinoma. We performed modified radical mastectomy on the patient. No recurrences were seen in the 24-month follow-up period.

Key words: Male breast cancer, invasive, papillary carcinoma
