(HealthNewsDigest.com)  - Breast cancer is a disease usually associated with women, as reflected by pink ribbons and apparel, but men get it too, albeit rarely.

Because male breast cancer is rare, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn't have very good clinical trial data on treatments. "We tend to treat men the same way we treat women," says Tatiana M. Prowell, MD, a medical oncologist and breast cancer scientific lead at FDA's Office of Hematology & Oncology Products.

June is Men's Health Month. To learn about treatments for male breast cancer, read the Consumer Update.
