One in 100 Breast Cancer Cases Occurs In Men

Did you know that 1 in every 100 breast cancer cases is in a man? While the incidence is lower in men than women, men are 10 times more likely to die from the disease than women. Men should talk to their doctor about any abnormal lump in the breast just like women do.

In this news report from WACH, Lexington Medical Center breast cancer survivor Frank Wooten shares his story and offers some advice for men.

Frank was a model in a breast cancer survivor fashion show at Women’s Night Out in 2016, an annual Lexington Medical Center event that celebrates breast cancer survivors and their families.
