Study: Men with breast cancer don't live as long as women


Very few men are diagnosed with breast cancer but researchers find those who are don't survive as long as women with the disease.

A new 10 year study finds women with breast cancer live an average of two years longer than men. Researchers say tumors in men were larger and more advanced at the time of diagnosis. They say many men ignore the symptoms because they aren't aware they can get breast cancer.
