|4/29/2011||Very Interesting! Most assuredly report and publish case. There is very little literature about breast angiosarcoma in men. While we are often sent slides to our pathology lab for consults for male angiosarcoma, we have not treated a male for this particular breast cancer. Best wishes!|
