October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We've told you that one percent of the patients are men, but more effective than a number.
Ray Saez is a patient. He says he wants other men to know that breast cancer awareness should be the goal for men too. "It looked exactly like a pimple. When the third one came up, I figured it would pop, but instead of popping it actually inverted my nipple." "I overlooked a pimple, and now I'm fighting for my life."
Ray Saez has inflammatory breast cancer, which is something he has been fighting for four years. Now, Saez and his family want to make other men aware that even though it's not as common in men, breast cancer can be a threat to anyone.
The American Cancer Society says men need to be aware of any changes or lumps in the breast; just like women do.
