Let’s get some blue on the pink, since men get breast cancer too

Men with breast cancer have a less chance of survival than women. It is generally recognized that this is because they are diagnosed later than women since they are often reluctant to present with issues, and their health practitioners are not recognizing symptoms of the disease early enough. The lack of male-specific clinical research and trials means that treatment for men is based on that for women.

To help us change common perceptions that breast cancer is a female-only disease, please consider implementing the attached Manifesto For Males With Breast Cancer.

When the ubiquitous pink ribbons and associated merchandise rolls for breast cancer awareness, let’s consider including a small patch of blue.
