Very few men are diagnosed with breast cancer, but a new study points to why men should take a lump in the breast seriously and get it checked right away. The study finds women with the disease live longer than men after a diagnosis. Researchers say by the time men go in for help, the tumors are larger, more advanced, and more likely to have spread to other parts of the body. Experts say many men ignore the symptoms because they aren't aware they can get breast cancer. Breast cancer in men commonly presents as a lump under or near the nipple.
