When Partner Has Breast Cancer, Men Find Their Own Ways to Cope
Date:8/9/2012

THURSDAY, Aug. 9 (HealthDay News) -- New Canadian research finds that male partners of women with breast cancer aren't big fans of spousal support groups and instead choose to de-stress by exercising or hanging out with friends.

"If you're a working man, it becomes difficult to go to some appointments, although some of that is just perception," Duggleby said. They're not being excluded but they feel like they're being excluded. It's part of breaking down some of those barriers in cancer care."

One way to help men in these situations is to provide guides about where to find information, Duggleby said.

"They really do want something that's specific for them, tailored for their needs. It doesn't have to be done through a research study," she said. "There is a lot that can be done just based on what these spouses said and the ideas they provided. It wo
