In this candid interview about male breast cancer, Nyack Rotarian Dr. Arnold Roufa, a retired OB/GYN, describes his own experience with breast cancer, detected in 1994. It is not nearly as prevalent as among women, but breast cancer affects about 2,000 men each year. Dr. Roufa describes the signs and the treatment, effective especially if the cancer has been detected early. Since the topic has not been part of a typical male’s medical concerns, it is more difficult to encourage men to take the same precautions as women, such as self-examination and an annual physical, which includes examination for breast cancer.
