Information About Breast Cancer In Men

Treatment Options for Men's Breast Cancer

Breast cancer in men is typically treated in much the same way it is in women. A combination of surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and drugs like tamoxifen will likely be used, depending on the cancer's stage. The most significant difference between treatment for men's breast cancer is that there is significantly less support for men. Most women can easily identify other women with breast cancer, but the same cannot be said for men. Men often shy away from talking about their disease as it is perceived as a 'woman's illness.' It's helpful for men who are living with a breast cancer diagnosis to seek out other men in the same situation for moral support. This can aid recovery significantly. The exchange of information about breast cancer is no less important for men than women.
