The huge difference between the percentages of women and men developing breast cancer is due to hormones.

Over a dozen South Florida cancer survivors swam with the dolphins at Miami Seaquarium in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

"However we choose to acknowledge Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it's important for law enforcement to stand behind this effort for all the courageous people who are battling the disease, have lost their lives or lost loved ones", Sheriff Golden said.

"Studies reveal that about 1 in 8 women will be affected by breast cancer in their lifetime".

Also, even though it is very rare, men can also develop breast cancer.

He however noted that this should not cause women to ignore regular breast screening as prevention is always better than cure.

Avon has teamed up with breast cancer charity CoppaFeel to help raise awareness of the importance of checking your breasts and getting to know your body.

Treatment for male breast cancer is generally the same as for female breast cancer.

Early detection and treatment can significantly improve survival rates, according to the society. If detected late, however, curative treatment is often no longer an option.

"Initiating survivorship care planning early, establishing a baseline for sociocultural insights, building trust, and providing evidence-based care are prime examples of where the healthcare system can be more targeted to black women", Nolan concluded in the interview with Forbes.
