Breast cancer is almost always spoken of as a women's condition, but what many people don't realize is that breast cancer is a concern for men as well. While the number of breast cancer deaths that strike men each year is less than one percent of all breast cancer mortalities, that still represents about 290 deaths. That number could be reduced significantly if men were more aware of their risk. As with women, one of the most telling risk factors is family history. Anyone with a family history of breast cancer should be vigilant of any changes that occur in their breast. Despite the low risk, men should make themselves aware of symptoms and effects of breast cancer. Any changes in the breast should be brought to the attention of a physician immediately.
