Calls for heightened awareness of male breast cancer
The American Medical Association called for heightened awareness of male breast cancer and called on the insurance industry to cover male breast cancer monitoring and diagnostic methods, including mammography.
“Male breast cancer is rare, but it tends to be diagnosed at later stages,” said AMA Board member, Dr. Edward Langston. “Heightened awareness of the increased risk in certain men may result in earlier detection of male breast cancer. Clinical breast examinations are effective at evaluating breast cancer symptoms, but mammography may also help.”
