Men should be aware of risk of breast cancer

Full story: Orlando Sentinel

No breasts, no need for breast cancer tests. Right? That has been my assumption -- even though breast cancer struck my mom when she was 39.

Men need to get checked and do breast self-exams. I'm a 68 year old male and a two year breast cancer survivor. Men need to be educated on the possibility of having breast cancer. The mortatality rate in men is much higher simply because we don't look for the problem, and, when we do find the problem, it's at a later stage and harder to overcome.

All of the points of this story are well taken, and men need to be more aware of their potential risks. However, the cost of the genetic test is $3120 only if all four genes need to be tested. In the setting where a relative has already been tested positive for a mutation, the cost of any subsequent family members being tested is only $385. This is virtually always covered by insurance, and there is no concern regarding possible insurance "discrimination" if a person is found to carry a mutation.
