Male Breast Cancer on the Rise
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?”.
