Website For Men With Breast Cancer Launched In Australia

A website is being launched in Australia to help men manage with breast cancer, a disease traditionally associated with women, so that men who are diagnosed every year have their own private resource. The National Breast Cancer Center (NBCC) maintains the website.

It was explained that every year about 100 Australian men are diagnosed with the condition. Alison Evans, from the National Breast Cancer Center, explained that the new website will provide specific information to help men cope with their diagnosis.

She said, "A survey that we did recently showed one in three people across Australia don't actually know that men could get breast cancer. So men are facing shock, some of them may be facing a sense of embarrassment. Particularly, what a lot of men have said to us is that they have a sense of isolation."

Helen Zorbas NBCC director explaining that men often face additional shock, embarrassment and isolation said, "It's vital the information is relevant for men to reduce the sense that breast cancer is a women's disease."
