INTERNATIONAL BREAST CANCER AWARENESS...
Today real men wear PINK, because cancer doesn't know April from June or December from January, which is why it can strike any one at any time. Despite the fact that men don't have breast like ladies. All people, whether male or female, are born with some breast cells and tissue. Since it is still breast tissue, men can get pectoral cancer. Men get the same sorts of breast tumors that ladies do. Although breast cancer in men is rare. this year an estimated 2,600 men will be diagnosed with pectoral cancer and approximately 440 will die. Less than 15 percent of women who get breast cancer have a family member who has been diagnosed with the disease, and about one in eight U.S. women will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In 2016, it is estimated that there will be 246,660 new cases of female breast cancer and an estimated 40,450 people will die of this disease.
