Male breast cancer undiagnosed

A man was shocked to discover that his brother had developed hereditary breast cancer. The man’s brother died from the disease which had killed his mother and attacked his sister. The man underwent a double mastectomy to ensure he wouldn’t get the disease. Male breast cancer is less common but often more lethal because it is diagnosed later. 300 British men are diagnosed with breast cancer annually.
