October 27, 2006, Newsletter Issue #39: Statistics On Breast Cancer In Men

Tip of the Week

Most men are not likely to get breast cancer. Statistics show that fewer than 2,000 men in the United States are likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer each year. Of all cancer deaths that occur in men, breast cancer accounts for a scant two-tenths of a percent of them. However, women are hundred times more likely to be afflicted with this disease.

Statistics aside, men can and do get breast cancer. Some do die from it. So, if you're inclined to scoff at the possibility, hold back. If you consider breast cancer to be a health problem solely found in women and ignore the possibility that you might develop it, you're being naive. If you don't take the necessary precautions to investigate the possibility that you might have breast cancer, you could be putting your life in jeopardy. Be smart and look into breast cancer screening, whether you're a man or a woman.
