Men Get Breast Cancer Too

When Walk the Walk launched the Men Get Breast Cancer Too! campaign in 2017, the aim was to support 6 men who had become frustrated that their voices were not being heard. Now, five years later there are 24 men all uniting with one voice...

Yes... Men Get Breast Cancer Too!

With more awareness lives could be saved... and if we can save even one life by our campaign, it will make it worthwhile!

The Facts...

  • There is currently very little research, and no routine screening specifically for men, so most male breast cancers are found by self-checking their chest, or just noticing changes.
  • Male breast cancer affects between 370 – 400 men a year in the UK, however over 80 men a year die from breast cancer due to not knowing men can get this type of cancer, and not doing regular checks.
  • Breast cancer usually affects men aged 50 and over, but it can be found in men of any age.
