Why are men not as aware?

Because Breast Cancer is so much more common among women and is a major cultural issue with women, men tend to believe it’s more of a woman’s disease. This is not the case. Men are also not as open to going to the doctor and getting medical treatment, and that may delay a diagnosis in general. It’s also not a common screening for the male population like it is for women of a certain age.
