Country Singer Paul Ott Carruth Battles Breast Cancer

Whether slightly different strategies would work better for men is still a matter of some debate, however.

"We just haven't been able to do many studies on men's treatment," says Scott-Conner, "because there aren't enough of them out there to study."

Additionally, according to Scott-Conner, there can be further hardships for men diagnosed with breast cancer.

"Men have a difficult time with it," she says. "It can be isolating for them, because many men don't even know that breast cancer is even something that is possible for them to have."

Moy agrees. "It can be hard for men to go into a clinic; in many places, the breast cancer treatment takes place in a women's cancer center.

"We all have to do a better job to focus on all our patients."
