Jordanian sounds cancer warning

Lack of awareness about breast cancer among men often leads to dangerously late diagnosis.

    Because of the world's lack of awareness of male breast cancer, a very rare and deadly disease, early diagnosis does not commonly happen and, thus, it is often too late to cure.

    In Jordan, statistics shows that almost 90 per cent of men do not know that they are at risk of getting the illness.

    Nisreen el-Shamayleh reports from Amman, Jordan's capital, where she spoke to a male breast cancer patient about his condition.
