Dr Oliver Bogler - MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, USA

Dr Bogler talks to ecancertv at SABCS 2013 about male breast cancer.

It is estimated that 1% of breast cancer occurs in men: the American Cancer Society estimates 2,240 male breast cancer cases vs 234,580 female cases in 2013 in the US.

However, the male disease remains understudied and access to clinical trials for men is lags behind, as will be shown by analysis of grants, papers and trials.

Dr Bogler makes the case that by including research on male breast cancer alongside the female disease, and providing direct targeted funds, there is the opportunity to fill important gaps in knowledge. Furthermore, raising awareness and improving trial eligibility has the important potential to improve the outcome for men with breast cancer.
