Male breast cancer patients need better information and support services

National initiatives are needed to provide support and information for male breast cancer patients, state the authors of a Seminar in this week's issue of The Lancet.

Male breast cancer is a rare, but neglected disease. In their Seminar Ian Fentiman (Guy's Hospital, London, UK) and colleagues state that current support systems for men with breast cancer are rudimentary. In women, a diagnosis of breast cancer can result in depression and anxiety, however, no structured psychosocial studies have been reported in male breast cancer. In-depth interviews of male patients indicate several major areas of concern: delay in diagnosis, shock, stigma, casual factors related to body image, and lack of information and emotional support.

Professor Ian Fentiman states: "There is evident need for national protocols for both information and support for men diagnosed with breast cancer."
