Breast Cancer Facts, 10/14

Men do get breast cancer. The men active in social media remind me, when I start to rail against the “awareness” campaigns, that they do still need awareness. Most people don’t understand that because men have mammary glands, while not usually as developed as women’s mammary glands, they can develop cancer in the same ducts.

Metastatic breast cancer, affecting both men and women, needs more awareness. Awareness that we are all #dyingforacure, together.

  1. Have you read “The bright hour” by Nina Riggs? I love that book. In it, among other things, she tells the story of breast cancer in her family and describes how her grandfather got the disease.
