|Yes Guys do have Breast Cancer ! by DWJOBScom(m): 5:25pm On Feb 27, 2018|
Fact: Men have breast tissue—similar to what a pre-pubescent girl has—that can become cancerous. Around 1,500 male breast cancer diagnoses occur each year and an estimated 400 men die each year from the disease—so it’s clearly nothing to scoff at. Risk factors include: being 60 years or older, family history, and obesity.
Getting a cancer diagnosis is often one of the scariest experiences in a person’s life. In fact, a study from MetLife suggests that cancer is the most-feared disease among adults in America, with 41 percent of survey subjects indicating concern about developing cancer in their lifetime.
Although it’s understandable to fear a disease that kills 8.2 million people every single year, many people don’t realize how likely they are to develop cancer in the first place. While habits like smoking, excessive drinking, or carrying extra weight can increase your cancer risk, the overall odds you’ll develop cancer the disease may be lower than you think.
According to the American Cancer Society, men have a 39.66 percent probability, or approximately a one in three risk, of developing cancer in their lifetime. For women, the odds are slightly lower, at 37.65 percent. While those statistics may seem grim, there’s still hope. In fact, your risk of dying from cancer remains relatively low. Men have a 22.05 percent lifetime risk of dying from cancer, while the risk for women hovers around 18.75 percent.
And while the American Cancer Society’s Global Facts & Figures suggests that new cancer diagnoses will grow by up to 50 percent by the year 2030, the odds of survival are better than ever. Not only is the uptick in cancer rates largely related to the ever-increasing human lifespan and lower birthrates in developing countries, cancer treatments are becoming more advanced by the minute
