Men with breast cancer feeling 'isolated'
A new study by the Medical Research Council has shown men who have been diagnosed with breast cancer feel isolated by services geared up only for women.
A new information source for men with breast cancer, on the website healthtalkonline, hopes to give them more support as they encounter widespread ignorance.
Some even describe being addressed as "Mrs" at clinic appointments. About 30 men in Scotland are diagnosed with breast cancer every year.
