Having said that we are a support group for women who have breast cancer, we mustn't forget that it can also affect men, although it is rare.
Fewer than 300 cases are diagnosed each year in the U.K, compared with over 38,000 cases of breast cancer in women. That's about one man for every 130 women diagnosed. Most of the information aimed at women is relevant for men with breast cancer because the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment are very similar. The emotional and psychological impact though will be different and finding support may not be as easy simply because of the rarity of the disease in men.
