To close Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Delano’s Aaron Grunwald spoke with Ara City Radio’s Tom Clarke about some of lesser known breast cancer patients. And they shared some Halloween suggestions.

Monday was the last day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. One group that is sometimes forgotten when talking about breast cancer are men and younger women.

As Delano’s Tracy HeindrichsTracy Heindrichs recently reported, men represent less than 1% of breast cancer cases, which is probably why they aren’t typically targeted by information campaigns.

Women under 50 represent 21% of breast cancer cases. About 5% of breast cancer cases in Luxembourg affect women under 35.
