One percent of breast cancer is male

Yes, it's true. Men have breast tissue and can develop breast cancer. Male breast cancer accounts for about 1% of breast cancer diagnoses—an estimated 2,030 new cases in 2007—and has survival rates similar to those for women's breast cancer.

I now have a blue and pink Male Breast Cancer Ribbon section because, as with all breast cancer, more awareness leads to more and better detection and treatment. This October, round out your Breast Cancer Awareness Month support with blue and pink ribbon gear from JamieCo Design!
