4 Facts about Men breast and nipple

1 out of 4 breast cancer patient are men.(WHO)

Assalamualaikum and Hello my lovely readers.

Men breast,yes today the post is about men breast.What is men Breast? anatomically men breast is the protruding part of the upper part of men chest, and it also include one little "dots" that we defined as nipple.There are four interesting facts about men breast.

1.Why man have breast and nipple? and what are their function in men? In women , it is obvious the major function of it is clear for breastfeeding right?In men however there is no obvious function.

Darwin (the one that assume mankind evolve from monkey) proposed that male mammals once shared the job providing milk to their young , but there is no evidence found published in books yet.But what are facts for now,there are species like:
  • Monotremes:duck-billed platypus and echidna;the males have highly developed nipples.
  • Mamillary Sexual Dimorphism:horse and rodents;the female got nipple but male do not.(wow!)
Ok,back to human being.In Human,in the earliest week of human development,the male and female embryo follow a virtually identical development characteristics.Then,about 7 weeks,the production of testosterone(male hormone) kicks in and the male is different anatomically from the female .By then,it is too late ; nipple are already formed in both sexes.That is how man have nipple and breast.:D

2.Next ,man boobs.Man boobs is a term to reflect a man with boobs,meaning a big breast and nipple like women.It is due to imbalance in the endocrine(cell that produce hormone) that cause gynecomastia - enlargement of the male breast.
