St. Petersburg, Fla. -- On the 10th of every month, we remind you and your buddy to do your breast self exam. We always encourage you to look for any changes, and that includes guys too!

While breast cancer is rare in men - less than one percent of breast cancers are found in men - it is typically caught at a later stage because many guys don't believe they can get breast cancer.

Here are four warning signs of male breast cancer:

  • A lump in the breast
  • An inverted or painful nipple
  • Any discharge or sores around the nipple
  • Enlarged lymph nodes under your arm

The bottom line, early detection is the key to saving lives. If you notice any changes, make sure you see your doctor.
