Breast Cancer in Men

Posted: Updated:

New research suggests that breast cancer in men may be more deadly than in women.

Experts say, men with breast cancer don't do as well as women with breast cancer and that men were less likely to get the standard treatments that women get.

According to the American Cancer Society nearly 2,200 new cases of male breast cancer are expected this year.

The cancer society estimates 410 men in the U.S. will die of breast cancer in 2012.
