An estimated 2,470 men in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year and nearly 500 will die from their disease. This #MensHealthWeek, we're highlighting our commitment to changing this statistic. BCRF researchers are leading the world’s largest study of male breast cancer. This global effort analyzes more than 1,800 cases to increase our knowledge of the nature of the disease, the different forms it takes in men versus women, and how it is treated around the world.
