Male Breast Cancer

Male Breast Cancer

Men diagnosed with male breast cancer at an early stage have a good chance for a cure. Still, many men delay seeing their doctors if they notice unusual signs or symptoms, such as a breast lump. For this reason, many male breast cancers are diagnosed when the disease is more advanced.

2. Add-On Accidental Death Cover

Accidental death means traumatic death caused solely by external, violent, unforeseeable and visible means, occurring independently of any other causes and within 14 (fourteen) days of such trauma, proved to the satisfaction of the insurer, in its discretion.

The Accidental Death Cover will pay out for virtually all types of accidental or violent death (car accidents, hijackings, etc). This benefit is not normally offered at the beginning of the policy, but will be offered at a later stage.
