NEW YORK TIMES: Beyoncé’s Father, Mathew Knowles, on His Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Mathew Knowles, the father and former manager of Beyoncé and Solange, revealed this week that he received treatment for breast cancer this year, becoming one of the rare men to face the disease. 

Mr. Knowles, 67, a music executive who teaches sports events and entertainment marketing at Prairie View A&M University in Texas, spoke on Wednesday in interviews with ABC’s “Good Morning America” and The New York Times about his experience. 

About 245,000 women in the United States learn they have breast cancer each year, compared with about 2,200 men, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The disease kills about 41,000 women and 460 men in the country each year. 

Mr. Knowles first noticed something was wrong in July, when drops of blood kept showing up on his shirts, he told The Times. “Imagine a piece of white paper and you took a red pen and just put a dot,” he said. “That’s what it looked like in my T-shirt.”
