Earlier this year, Dr. Jason Dranove had a mastectomy to prevent breast cancer. Yes, you read that right. It's rare, but males can develop breast cancer and have surgery to remove breast tissue. Dranove, a pediatric gastroenterologist at Levine Children's Hospital, chose to have the operation after a medical discovery unfolded in his father's family. It began when his uncle in New Jersey was diagnosed with breast cancer and, a year later, with pancreatic cancer.
