Did you know that men can get breast cancer? It’s less common than in women, but that’s no reason to leave them out! Every individual’s breast cancer battle is just as important as the next.
Dr. Marisa Weiss, practicing oncologist and a breast cancer survivor herself, is here to tell us that 1% of all breast cancer diagnoses are made in men. Most men don’t even realize that they can get breast cancer, so a diagnosis can come as a real shock.
Men, keep an eye out for any changes in your chest area. And women, make sure you keep an eye on the men in your life, too! You know how to do self-checks and when to see a doctor, but does he?
Gender shouldn’t matter when it comes to treating breast cancer. Speak out for men who are denied coverage for breast cancer treatment simply because they are not female. Sign the petition!
