Yesterday was Father's Day!
Mother's Day tends to be celebrated more than Father's Day, though it is an important day to express a gratitude.
I'm sure everyone had a great Father's Day!
Today, I'm writing this article to every gentleman who works hard every day for their loved one.
We posted the article about peculiar cancer in men before. This time, we will talk about male breast cancer.
We likely to think that breast cancer is peculiar to women.
Men also have a mammary gland tissue the number of patients is not as large as women, but still, it can not be said that there is no possibility of the onset of an illness.
Many women are conscious of breast cancer and it is easy to feel something strange with their breast.
On the other hand, men tend to think that I would not get breast cancer, and they think lightly of a lump in their chest.
According to the data created by Dr. Akihiko Shimomura of Central Hospital of the National Cancer Research Center from "Breast Cancer Society Annual Breast Cancer Registration Totalization", the number of female patients who newly occurred cancer is 86,678, and 560 in men. The ratio of male cancer patients is 0.4 to 0.7% in each year, against female cancer patients.
Although women have helpline support and communities for breast cancer, in case of men,
it is difficult to get information because of the lower number of patients and awareness as described above.
The incidence rate of breast cancer in women increase from their 30s and decrease in the early 50s.
In the case of men, the incidence rate increase in their 50s to 70s, and cancer develops later than women.
Men are said to be easy to notice the symptoms since their breast is not large.
I hope that as many people as possible will understand that breast cancer is can occur in both men and women.
