Men also prone to breast cancer

Their number may be smaller than women, but Thai men between 60-70 years old are also prone to breast cancer, National Cancer Institute (NCI) Director Weerawut Imsamran told the Thai-language daily Thai Rath yesterday (Jan 9, 2020).

In 2014, there were 162 men and 14,804 women with breast cancer.

Statistics collected by the NCI has shown that men with breast cancer are between 60-70 years old, while women with breast cancer are 7-8 years younger.

The death rates among men and women are not much different.
