This is Dr. David
I am sorry about your partner.
has his thrush in his mouth and tongue been treated with antifungal treatments?
thrush can be a sign of suppressed immune system. he should get an HIV test just to be sure he doesn't have HIV.
male breast cancer is rare, but can happen. hopefully the biopsy of the nipple mass will show a benign cyst or lump there. not all breast masses in men are breast cancer.
pleurectomies can be very draining and fatiguing as well.
I am a cancer doctor
chances for metastatic cancer is very low
he should start with a breast ultrasound scan first to see if the mass is solid or filled with fluid
and if it has benign or more malignant characteristics.

yes, I still think cancer and metastatic cancer at his age is unlikely
an ultrasound of the breast will be faster to get than a biopsy.
cancer symptoms wouldn't come and go.
