October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As the nation takes time to promote awareness of this disease it is important to remember that it not only affects women, but men as well. In the United States, about 1 percent of breast cancer cases occur in men. It is estimated by the end of this year that 430 men will have died as a result of breast cancer, according to information from the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
