  • Male breast cancer

    If you think or thought that breast cancer was a "women only" issue and not a "men" issue you'd be dead wrong. Its more prevalent than many men know or will admit or face up to.

      Better to be forewarned, I have seen to many close friends affected by the various forms of cancer.

        It sure seems that way John, but it is a fact of life (and death) for many men and ignoring it won't make it go away.

        It came to light as part of a discussion with one of my sisters who is a Palliative Care nurse (mobile) and she sees quite a few men with breast cancer at various stages of progression.

        Palliative care is needed at advanced stages of many cancers - prostate and breast included.

        It seems that many men are diagnosed later than many/most women are as women are very aware of it and get checked regularly and earlier.

        Many men seem to accept that "man boobs" can be a side effect of hormone therapy for prostate cancer and the breasts are very evident and are very similar to women's breasts in terms of form but with a lower incidence than that for women.



        Have a nice day.

              I guess hulu isnt for us canucks!

              Sorry, currently our video library can only be watched from within the United States

              Hulu is committed to making its content available worldwide. To do so, we must work through a number of legal and business issues, including obtaining international streaming rights. Know that we are working to make this happen and will continue to do so. Given the international background of the Hulu team, we have both a professional and personal interest in bringing Hulu to a global audience.

                        I'am probably going to be shouted off this thread but please hear me out on this one. About one third of us men are going to die from cancer. However with today's doctor's opinions, a lot of these opinions in action can go to slowing down OR controlling our cancer so we die in a realistic time sound, ie old age, without agrivation. As well, I am 67. Have had a heart attack and have the "finger every year but have been told not to come back for two years. But do not trust them with my body any more then my finger. I still go to my shop everyday and any money I make is used to buy something else I do not need. Wayne.

                          I can't see you being "shouted off" (from) here.

                          I quite agree with what you said as it applies to you - and probably many others as well.

                            This point is especially timely for me. A close friend passed last weekend after an 8 year battle with cancer. His original diagnosis was breast cancer, but over time it spread to other areas. He was 64. Breast cancer is not just a female issue.

                              What are the key statistics about breast cancer in men?

                              The American Cancer Society estimates for breast cancer in men in the United States for 2014 are:
                              • About 2,360 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed
                              • About 430 men will die from breast cancer

                              Breast cancer is about 100 times less common among men than among women. For men, the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. The number of breast cancer cases in men relative to the population has been fairly stable over the last 30 years.
                              http://www.cancer.org/cancer/breastc...key-statistics

                              That is quite a bit higher than ebola deaths in the US.
