We discuss head trauma but what about BREAST TRAUMA?
Breast Trauma can occur from Boxing, Tennis, Basketball, Impact Sports,
Daily Household Injuries, Physical Abuse and more!
PDI CLINICAL TRIALS & RESEARCH CENTER, INC. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In 1978, Dr. William Paul created Women’s boxing on the amateur level at the University of Minnesota. At this time, he was working as a research technician at the University of Minnesota School of Medicine assisting in cancer research. While there, he became interested in and very concerned with the trauma women suffered while boxing. His concern was for the possibility of the development of breast cancer as a result of this trauma in male and female. A few years later at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, he met the women’s athletic director who introduced him to Dr. Lena June Stoner. A search spearheaded by William Paul yielded no information in the medical literature related to trauma and breast cancer. Dr. William Paul pulled together a research team to explore this possibility. It was proven conclusively that there was indeed an association but more research would need to be done. Now, over 30 years later, Dr. William Paul is still addressing these questions to evaluate the prevention of breast cancer related to breast trauma.
MALE BREAST CANCER
Black men have the highest incidence rates (2.7 out of every 100,000 men), followed by white men (1.9 out of every 100,000 men). Male breast cancer is a rare cancer that forms in the breast tissue of men. Though breast cancer is most commonly thought of as a disease that affects women, breast cancer does occur in men. Male breast cancer is most common in older men, though it can occur at any age.
Men diagnosed with male breast cancer at an early stage have a good chance for a cure. Treatment typically involves surgery to remove the breast tissue. Other treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy, may be recommended based on your particular situation.
Signs and symptoms of male breast cancer can include:
A painless lump or thickening in your breast tissue
Changes to the skin covering your breast, such as dimpling, puckering, redness or scaling
Changes to your nipple, such as redness or scaling, or a nipple that begins to turn inward

What is the
survival rate of
men with breast cancer?
This means men with breast cancer are, on average, 83 percent as likely as men
in the general population to live 5 years beyond their diagnosis.
The 10-year relative survival rate for men with breast cancer is 71 percent .
Survival rates are averages and vary depending on each man’s diagnosis and treatment.
Can a man die
from breast cancer?
This year, an estimated 2,550 men in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer. … It is estimated 480 men will die from breast cancer this year. The 5-year survival rate tells you what percent of men live at least 5 years after the breast cancer is found. Percent means how many out of 100. Overall, the 5-year survival rate for men with breast cancer is 84%. Individual survival rates depend on different factors, including the stage of disease at the time of diagnosis. For the earliest stages of breast cancer in men, stages 0 and I (zero and one), the 5-year survival rate is 100%. Approximately 47% of cases are diagnosed at this stage. The 5-year survival rate for men with stage II (two) disease is 91% and stage III (three) disease is 72%. When the disease has spread to other parts of the body, the stage is called stage IV (four). The 5-year survival rate for men with stage IV breast cancer is 20%. Even if the cancer is found at a more advanced stage, new treatments help many people with breast cancer maintain a good quality of life, at least for some time.
What does breast cancer
in a man feel like?
The feel of a breast lump depends on its cause, location, and growth. They can vary greatly from painful, hard, and immobile to soft, painless, and easily moveable. According to BreastCancer.org, lumps are most likely to be cancerous if they do not cause pain, are hard, unevenly shaped, and immobile

Is it normal for
a guy to have a
lump in his breast?
That small lump with tenderness beneath the nipple is a normal part of puberty. In fact, about half of all boys develop gynecomastia during puberty. It’s usually temporary and can happen on just one side or both. Some guys also may feel tenderness in the breast area when they go through puberty.
It is important to remember that statistics on the survival rates for men with breast cancer are an estimate. The estimate comes from annual data based on the number of men with this cancer in the United States. Also, experts measure the survival statistics every 5 years. So the estimate may not show the results of better diagnosis or treatment available for less than 5 years. Men should talk with their doctor if they have any questions about this information. Statistics adapted from the American Cancer Society’s (ACS) publications, Cancer.Net Editorial Board, 01/2018, Cancer Facts and Figures 2018 and Cancer Facts and Figures 2017: Special Section – Rare Cancers in Adults, and the ACS website (January 2018).
FEMALE BREAST CANCER
In the United States, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer to females, the second most common cause of cancer related death in women, and the main cause of death in women ages 40 to 59. Approximately one-half of breast cancer cases can be explained by known risk factors, such as age at menarche, first live birth, menopause, and proliferative breast disease. An additional 10 percent are associated with a positive family history. The lifetime probability of developing breast cancer is one in six overall (one in eight for invasive disease).
SURVEY INTRODUCTION: Thank you for taking the time to complete this Breast Trauma Survey which will take between 5 and 15 minutes depending on the completeness of your responses. Your valuable response will assist in determining the association between breast trauma and breast cancer. Breast cancer kills. In order to show yet another risk factor for developing breast cancer, this survey is underway to gain beneficial information which you can assist with. Again, thank you for your valuable time.
