It has been almost 5 years since my husband Brock died from BREAST CANCER. The numbers of men get breast cancer is getting to be more and more. But yet the breast cancer sites are not doing much more to get the word out MEN GET BREAST CANCER, TOO. Yes I understand more women get breast cancer than men but why should it matter who gets breast cancer? The word needs to get out so everyone knows about male breast cancer. It was said a year ago that 1% of ALL breast cancer is in MEN. Well recently I heard it is now UP to 9% of all breast cancer is in men. If you want to see a picture of me, go to FOX 13 Tampa, FL and click on Dr. Jo's site.(see below for link) Put in male breast cancer and watch as I tell the story of my husband's battle with BREAST CANCER. No person should have to go through what Brock went through. Men need to do self breast exams just like women so they can detect anything out of the norm. Then they can get to a doctor for help.
Think about how I felt the day I was told by one breast cancer site that there was NO ROOM on the home page to put one sentence "MEN GET BREAST CANCER, TOO". Just one sentence for people to click on to find out this truth. NO ROOM for a sentence that can save lives. If people don't know men get breast cancer then how can they find any information?
