Because you're ******* retarded. They had an assembly every year at my highschool about testicular cancer and how you could get it in your 20's. Btw, Men can get breast cancer too genius.

1/3rd of people who get Breast cancer are male. You can buy a little badge whether you're male or female.

Movember raises awareness and money for prostate and testicular cancer. It's a little more difficult if you're female.

"Breast cancer is about 100 times less common among men than among women. For men, the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. The number of breast cancer cases in men relative to the population has been fairly stable over the last 30 years."

www.cancer.org/cancer/breastcancerinmen/detailedguide/breast-cancer-in-men-key-statistics

That being said, since breast cancer gets such massive funding, it is able to focus on a specific cancer and create massive breakthroughs that somebody studying all the cancers just can't do. These breakthroughs will of course benefit researchers of other cancers. It's just much easier to tackle one problem at a time. Furthermore, breast cancer affects about 1/8 of all women while prostate cancer's rate is 137.7/100,000.

I've never heard of that. All the American media cares about is breast cancer, and pancreatic for about 2 months after Steve jobs died.

The only month in America that is dedicated to a form of cancer that gets any publicity is for breast cancer. I blame the feminists.

Can we raise awareness for less survivable cancers now? Like, all of them?

I think everyone is pretty aware of breast cancer. No one's doing much to help it, but by God they're aware of it all right.

I've heard that a lot of the research for deadlier, lesser known cancers get underfunded while breast cancer gets like 90% of all cancer research donations.

If someone ever gets testicular cancer just never wear underwear so if some one complains tell the your condition.
