Background: There is limited research examining breast cancer gender differences. This study compares the trends and survival outcomes over the years between male (MBC) and female (FBC) breast cancer patients using the National Cancer Database (NCDB). Methods: We retrospectively analyzed the NCDB registry for MBC and FBC cases diagnosed between 2004 and 2014. Patient demographics, tumor characteristics, overall mortality (OM), and trends were compared between MBC and FBC Patients. Univariate, multivariate, and propensity score weighted analyses were done to compare MBC and FBC. Results: 19,488 MBC patients (0.9%) and 2,138,730 FBC patients (99.1%) were identified. Median follow-up was 59.63 months. Compared with FBC group, MBC group was more likely to be older (Mean:64, SD:13 vs. Mean:60, SD 13.3), African American or non-Hispanic, have more comorbidities, and have a hormonally positive tumor with a higher stage at diagnosis (all P
