Marital Status Affects Prognosis of Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Married breast cancer patients had a better prognosis than patients who were single, who in turn had a better prognosis than those who were divorced, separated, or widowed, revealed new Cancer Medicine study.

When considering race and tumor characteristics, the better prognosis of single patients was only observed in white patients and in patients with tumors expressing estrogen receptors and progesterone receptors.
