Men and Breast Cancer


“When my doctor told me it was breast cancer, I thought he was joking,” says Ron Coleman, a six-year survivor. Although the incidence is about 100 times lower in men than in women, more than 2,200 American men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013. Dr. Charles Shapiro, director of the Breast Research Program at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, says men tend to be diagnosed later, which can allow the disease to progress.
