When people think of mammograms, they often think of women. Contrary to what many people might think, breast cancer affects both genders. While they only make up 1% of the breast cancer cases in the US, a mammography is recommended for men who may be at high risk or experience some of the symptoms.
Although it is not near as common as in women, men’s breast cancer still needs to be talked about. Since men do not get yearly mammograms after 40 like women, it can be difficult to recognize the signs.
