Men Get Breast Cancer, Too — And Harvey Is Spreading The Word!The Breast Cancer Site
Men are not regularly screened for breast cancer, yet they are also at risk for this disease. The mortality rate is higher in men than women who have breast cancer because by the time it is diagnosed, it has typically progressed to a later stage in its development. What is it like being a man with breast cancer? Turns out, quite frustrating. Despite the obvious panic and shock that comes with a cancer diagnosis, the lack of information available about male breast cancer is extremely limited. Because of this fact, breast cancer survivor Harvey and his sister, also a breast cancer survivor, created a website dedicated to educating the public about male breast cancer.
