Men Can Get Breast Cancer Too
Article here. Maybe some of those pink ribbons should have a little blue added to them in places. Then again, ask for donations to help fight breast cancer in men and you're likely to get a dirty look. Ask for the same for women, and the wallets open up. Can you believe there are still some feminists who can keep a straight face and say that women are not getting enough attention from researchers for their particular ailments? Admittedly, the incidence compared with women is 1/100th, so epidemiologically, it's considered "insignificant". Say that to someone whose dad just died from it and see what they tell you. The denial around male health issues would be funny for its ridiculousness if it were not for the tragic consequences. Excerpt:
'The focus of Breast Cancer Awareness efforts are focused on women -- the ribbons are pink, after all. But men can get breast cancer too.
Patch sat down with a few local experts about male breast cancer:
Dr. Lee: It's important because men don't think they can get breast cancer. They don't think they can receive a mammogram screening. The discussion should be focused on breaking the myths and informing people on what is fact versus fiction. Men will say to me “men can't get breast cancer.” So they tend to show up late, when the lump has been there for several months, which is usually stage 2 or later. And that means that it has already spread to the lymph nodes because they have been waiting. I see this 50 percent of the time. If they never heard of male breast cancer, they think the lump will go away.'
