October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and while we mainly focus on how the disease affects women and what they can do about it, we need to keep in mind that men can contract breast cancer, too.    According to the American Cancer Society, one in 1,000 men will get Breast Cancer, which surprisingly claims the life of at least one man every day.

Of course, men are still at lower risk for breast cancer, but it’s important to, along with a normal physical, have a breast cancer checkup, too.

But, guys, your question is, okay, but what do I look for?

Well, the early warning signs of male breast cancer, including lumps in the breast, armpit or collarbone region, along with nipple discharge and redness anywhere on the breast. If at all possible, men should openly discuss unusual developments in their breasts with their doctors.

Treatment and survival rates for breast cancer in men are comparable to that of women.
