Breast cancer is a disease which is frequently associated with females. However, it also occurs in males, although not quite as frequently as in females.

Unfortunately, it seems like most males are not aware of this fact and wrongly assume that the disease only occurs in females. A very smart lady remarked that breasts are not like ovaries, which are found only in females. Because of this, males are also at risk of getting breast cancer.

This was highlighted by Matthew Knowles, the father of famous musician Beyonce, who revealed on Wednesday that he is battling breast cancer and urged other men to get tested for the disease.

Knowles, 67, shared his diagnosis on Good Morning America and revealed that he was treated in July after getting a mammogram.
