    Yes, definitely do! I don't think enough men are aware that they can get breast cancer. And I have read about doctors dismissing their male patients or misdiagnosing them... and then what occurs, is the cancer is found in a late stage. This time of year is the perfect time for people to help bring more awareness by writing an article for your local newspaper, congressman, etc.

    Thanks Diana. I live in Canada. I found a small lump in my left breast the the week of June. I was operated on September 1, complete mastectomy and Sentinel lymph node. I was advised yesterday that I have to back in 2 weeks for another surgery to remove more lymph nodes. Then chemo and/ or radiation. Very discouraging but i am glad I'm alive.

      I had my auxiliary lymph node surgery on the 17th. Everything went well.

      I am doing my best to promote male breast cancer awareness. Please pass it on. Thanks everyone.

    I was diagnosed with Male Brest cancer stage 2B in dec 2014, had double mastectomy, went through chemo and then radiation. Now taking Tamoxifen for 5 years. Believe me we have to get the word out about males getting it.Most men will ignore or not believe its possible for them to have it. I would like some suggestions on how to actually get the word out for men., Everything is centered around woman since men are only about 2% of the cancer patients. But it has to get out so that number doesn't grow.
