Chest cancer?

Posted Dec 11 2009 7:00am
What's in a name? Would men be more aware of their risk of breast cancer if it were called chest cancer?

One young Englishman thinks it would and is fighting to have breast cancer called chest cancer in the hope that calling it a different name will increase awareness about men and breast cancer. Although the incidence of male breast cancer is low it is diagnosed about 1500 times a year in the U.S. and about 300 times a year in the United Kingdom.

What do you think? Would it make a difference? Men, would you be more likely to pay attention if you were told you could have "chest Cancer"?
