“If Men Sucking Breast Could Prevent Cancer, I Won’t Have It”- Stephanie Benson

UK-based Ghanaian international singer and performer Stephanie Benson, has debunked the myth that breast sucking by men can prevent cancer.

In a recent interview on Opemsuo Radio’s Kumasefie with Mr. Black on October 14, she stated that this belief is entirely unfounded and fabricated. She emphasized that there is no scientific basis for such a claim.

Stephanie Benson went on to explain that, if breast sucking alone were an effective means of cancer prevention, she would not have developed cancer herself. Despite having five children who breastfed, she still faced the disease.

“It is not true that women need to have their breasts sucked by men to prevent cancer, it is a fabricated lie… There is nothing anywhere in any books, someone wants to suck breast and decided to come out with this.”

Stephanie advised women to perform regular self-screening for early detection of breast cancer.  She recommended conducting breast self-exams at least once a month, preferably one to three days after one’s menses.

The month of October is dedicated to raising awareness about breast cancer. This disease involves the uncontrollable growth of abnormal breast cells, forming tumours.

While roughly half of all breast cancers occur in women with no specific risk factors beyond sex and age, approximately 0.5-1% of breast cancers affect men according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).
