Mathew Knowles, Beyonce’s dad, on breast cancer diagnosis

Mathew Knowles, Beyonce's father recently revealed that he is a breast cancer survivor.

The 38-year-old pop superstar and her younger sister, 33, reportedly tested negative for the mutated human tumour suppressor gene, which can put females at a higher risk of developing ovarian and breast cancer.

He also spoke with TMZ Live and said that his daughters did not inherit the gene mutation gene while discussing his diagnosis.

This leaves a gap in funding and interest for research - something that will hopefully change as October's Breast Cancer Awareness Month brings more attention to male victims. The ones that spread (metastasise) to nearby tissue, to the lymph nodes or to other parts of the body develop in cancer. I'm good. I'm very fortunate. "The key to this is early detection".

The study found the survival rate for men diagnosed with breast cancer is 46%, compared to 86% for women. But as long as there are an average of 75 Canadians who are diagnosed with breast cancer each day, we can't stop raising funds for the breast cancer cause.

It's hard to say no to jewelry - especially when it's covered in pink sapphires and 20 per cent of proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. He's now urging men to be more aware of breast cancer and get tested.

"All women should talk with their health care provider about their personal risk for breast cancer". "It also means that my kids have a higher chance, a higher risk".

St Mary's Medical Center will be hosting events such as a fundraiser to provide breast health services for uninsured or underinsured women, a breast cancer survivor support group, free breast cancer screenings, a breast cancer survivor reunion and more throughout October.
