Living Life With Metastatic Breast Cancer From a Male Perspective

In this episode of Managed Care Cast, we speak with a male patient with breast cancer who was diagnosed with metastatic disease in 2016 about how he lives his life and what he wants people to know about this rare cancer.

Metastatic breast cancer is the most advanced stage of breast cancer; it is treatable but not curable. Men with breast cancer comprise less than 1% of all patients with the disease, and most of their treatments are based on study results seen among female patients. This year alone, experts predict that 276,480 women and 2620 men will receive a breast cancer diagnosis.

The American Journal of Managed Care® spoke recently with Kirby Lewis of West Virginia. Kirby was a stage 2 breast cancer survivor, for which he had a mastectomy in 2012, prior to receiving a diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer (MBC) in 2016. He is 1 of 9 patients with MBC who serve as representatives of “Facing MBC Together” from Athenex Oncology.

In this interview, he describes his philosophy about living life to the fullest and what he wants people to know about male breast cancer.
