A Million Little Things, actor James Roday plays a guy called Gary who has breast cancer. I have even been told I should be screened, because of family history. My Aunt Dawn died from it. She is my mom’s sister. However, my doctor wouldn’t do it. Plus, I have called mobile mamogram screening and they tell they are for women only.
Most men delay going to the doctor too or don’t think anything about a lump on their chest. It is common but also rare, but the fact men may delay going to the doctors or never going, could mean the stats could be higher maybe.
WBIR a local news channel in Knoxville has what is called Buddy Check 10. To remind women to do self breast exams as a preventive for breast cancer or other medical breast conditions.

I enjoy listening to nothing but Christian Music. Camping and hiking is something that I enjoy. I guess that is because I am an Eagle Scout. Blogging is something I enjoy doing too. I have been blogging since 2004. However, I have been blogging on Courageous Christian Father since 2012. I am married with 1 daughter and 2 step-sons and a step daughter.
