GR8 Health: Breast Cancer Affects Men, Too

October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month – but as 24-Hour News 8’s Lauren Lowrey explains, 1% of breast cancer sufferers are male.

Meet an Avon man who battled the disease 2 years ago, but because he waited so late to get a lump in his chest checked, the cancer spread to 28 lymph nodes and is now in his vertebrae. Lowrey says the message is that men who are at-risk (who have multiple generations of breast cancer sufferers in their family) should do breast self-exams just like women. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
