Men’s Health Month & Breast Cancer in Men. Get Involved!

Men's Health Month - Breast Cancer in Men - Pickups for Breast Cancer - Florida Breast Cancer Foundation

Men's Health Month - Breast Cancer in Men - Pickups for Breast Cancer - Florida Breast Cancer Foundation

This June, join the nationwide campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer in men. Educate the men in your life about the warning signs of breast cancer.

Male Breast Cancer: Less Common Than Women, But Still Serious  — It’s not unusual for a patient to ask if men can get breast cancer and the answer to the question is yes. In 2017, about 2,470 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed, and about 460 men will die from breast cancer.

Male breast cancer: Protein discovery could yield new treatments — In a new study, researchers have uncovered two proteins associated with male breast cancer, a discovery that could lead to more effective treatments.

Male Breast Cancer: A Rare, Increasing Trend — Why men are more likely to die from the disease that’s 100 times more common in women.

Breast Cancer in Men: More Common Than You Might Think — The treatment for breast cancer is the same for men and women, but the diagnosis and the risk factors are vastly different.

Support breast cancer research, education, and advocacy by scheduling a donation pickup online or by calling 1-888-492-4483(GIVE).
