Better half of a Breast Cancer Patient

Family has a huge role to play in supporting a breast cancer patient during her treatment and the most important member is the patient’s husband. My views regarding the role of a Breast Cancer Husband were recently highlighted in Health Spectrum Magazine.

As a Breast Cancer surgeon, I have seen a dramatic shift (towards good) in the family’s attitude towards Breast Cancer. In my initial years of training/ practice, I had encountered patients, who were deserted by their husbands after the diagnosis.

Nowadays, the scenario is quite different. I see husbands accompanying their wives for all their hospital visits and chemotherapy sessions. This is definitely helping patients cope with their disease in a better manner and I am hoping this trend continues in the future.
