Breast cancer in men

Breast cancer in men is rare. Around 350 men are diagnosed with the disease each year in the UK compared with over 50,000 women.

However, the earlier breast cancer is found, the better the chance of beating it, so it’s important to look out for any unusual changes and get them checked by your doctor right away.
