bad ass cancer survivor men

I would be negligent if I did not have information on men and breast cancer. Men may be about 100 times less likely to diagnosed with breast cancer than women but on 2013 about 2500 men be diagnosed. Around 400 men will die. Yes, the incident of men with breast cancer is far less than that of women and the mortality rate is much lower but each and every life is just as valuable and men need to pay attention to any changes in their body and visit their doctor regularly.

Here is information on Men and breast cancer form WebMD.

Men

120.9 per 100,000
