Why is breast cancer more publicized than most other cancers?

Report as

Because of the emotional connection. The thought of your mother getting it can be very upsetting. And something as simple as a mammogram can detect it, and prevent loss of life.

Can't men get it too?

Yes, but it is less likely. 3% of breast cancer patients are men.

You didn't make me read this.Breast cancer kills hundreds of thousand women a year.Women who are wive's,mothers,daughters,etc. It is a silent killer.Many women don't know they have until it's too late.It's all about early detection.It saves lives to publicize.Why would you even question this?

Of course I know that I'm not an idiot! I just wanted to know why that particular cancer was more "famous" than the others.
