Oncologist discusses male breast cancer symptoms and treatments

AUSTIN (KXAN) – October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. While pink ribbons are often worn to honor female survivors and victims, doctors also remind us that the disease can occur in men too.

The American Cancer Society predicts more than 2,000 American men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Although breast cancer is more common in women, doctors also recognize the risks for men.

Dr. Sanjay Vin from the Austin Cancer Center joined Erin Cargile on KXAN News Today to discuss breast cancer in men. Watch the video above for more information on treatment options and how symptoms compare to those experienced by women.
