This is my cancer. Dont know many people with it. All i know about MEN is that it is genetic, my father had it. I also know that it affects more men than women. It's rare, like 1 in 100,000 people are diagnosed with it. My specific type is said to affect the parathyroid glands, the pancreas and the pituitary gland. I have had 2 major parathyroid surgeries and am in need of another. I was diagnosed 12 years ago, while i was pregnant with my 3rd child.
