Male Breast Cancer on the Rise

separator The incidence of male breast cancer is increasing, and it’s most commonly detected in men who are older. Many men aren’t aware that it’s possible for them to get breast cancer, so if they notice a lump, they’re often not particularly concerned about it. Additionally, men tend to visit the doctor less frequently than women, so the breast cancer may be detected later than it would be for a woman.

While the disease itself is not much different for men and women, there are different types of issues to deal with. To read more about male breast cancer, read our Cancer E-Magazine’s June article titled, “Male Breast Cancer: How is it Different?”.
