Breast Cancer in Men: Overcoming the Stigma, One Man at a Time


Meet Michael Singer. He was diagnosed with breast cancer and couldn’t believe it. “I though it could be a mix up with files, or something”, Michael says. Even having a family history of breast cancer – his sister passed away with metastatic breast cancer – Michael never thought he could have this form of cancer. After his diagnosis, each time someone asked him what type of cancer he had, he never admitted it was breast cancer because he was embarrassed. But then something changed. Now Michael is a male breast cancer advocate and tries to spread the word and awareness about breast cancer in men.

In this video shared by the BCRF Vimeo account, watch Michael’s story and learn how he is on a mission to make sure men diagnosed with breast cancer aren’t embarrassed to talk about their disease.
