Over 230,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed every year in the United States alone, according to the National Cancer Institute. And while less than 1 percent of these cases occur in men, male breast cancer has a higher mortality rate, in part because it's more likely to be missed. Research is conducted on various aspects of the disease, including ways to lower the risk of breast cancer, the best treatment options and the mental and physical effects the disease has on the body.
