Study finds that significant proportion of men told wife's cancer was incurable late or not at all
Date:7/8/2008

se wives died of breast cancer reported they were not told their wives' illness was incurable, compared with 11 percent of widowers of women who died of ovarian cancer. The researchers speculated that because ovarian cancer is often diagnosed at an advanced stage, husbands may have known about the severity of their wives' illness.

Dr. Dahlstrand noted that attitudes toward the communication of health information are similar in other western countries, including the United States. She advises cancer patients and their family members who desire clear information about the extent of a patient's disease and chance of a cure to inform their physicians of their wishes in a direct manner. She also suggests that physicians ask patients and family members how much information they want to receive.
