Shining a Light on Male Breast Cancer: A New Resource Page


Breast cancer is often thought of as a disease that only affects women. However, it’s crucial to understand that men can and do get breast cancer. Although it’s a small percentage, the impact is significant for those affected. To help raise awareness and provide valuable information, we’re excited to announce the launch of our new page dedicated to Male Breast Cancer.

The Importance of Awareness:

Breast cancer in men is rare, accounting for less than 1% of all breast cancer cases. However, this doesn’t diminish the importance of awareness. In 2023, an estimated 2,800 men in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and approximately 530 will lose their lives to this disease. These numbers underscore the need for education, awareness, and resources tailored to men’s unique experiences with breast cancer.

Our New Resource Page:

Our new Male Breast Cancer page, advised by Dr. Yara Robertson, MD, FACS, a renowned Breast Surgical Oncologist, provides comprehensive information about male breast cancer. It includes risk factors, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment options, and frequently asked questions. The page also features inspiring stories from male breast cancer survivors, Rod from Australia and Harvey from Pennsylvania, who have turned their experiences into advocacy work.

Dr. Yara Robertson’s Contribution:

Dr. Yara Robertson has been instrumental in advising on the content of the page. Her expertise and dedication to the cause have been invaluable in ensuring the information we provide is accurate, relevant, and helpful. Dr. Robertson emphasizes the importance of spreading knowledge about male breast cancer, stating, “It’s important to spread knowledge about this issue because, while it is relatively rare, men can still develop breast cancer.”


At Learn Look Locate, we’re committed to raising awareness and providing educational resources about breast cancer. Our mission is to empower individuals with knowledge and tools to detect breast cancer early, understand their treatment options, and find support in the stories of survivors.

Our new Male Breast Cancer page is a testament to this commitment. It’s not just a page; it’s a comprehensive resource designed to shed light on a topic that often goes unnoticed. We believe that by raising awareness about male breast cancer, we can help break down the barriers of gender stereotypes associated with this disease and encourage men to take proactive steps towards their breast health.

In addition to our new page, we invite you to explore other resources on our website. Learn about the various aspects of breast cancer, from diagnosis and treatment to survivor stories. Get advice from our esteemed medical advisors who bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to our platform.

Remember, breast cancer doesn’t discriminate by gender. Awareness, education, and early detection can save lives. Let’s continue to learn, look, and locate together.
