Title:
Men's experiences of their partner's primary and recurrent breast cancer.
Authors:
Foy, Sharon; Rose, Karen
Abstract:
The reaction and support from the partner of the woman with breast cancer is viewed by health professionals as an important factor in her adjustment to disease. However, there is little theory and research that focuses on the individual concerns and experiences of the man living with a woman who has breast cancer. Literature concerning the experience of breast cancer recurrence for both the partner and the patient is particularly sparse. The aim of this literature review is to explore the experiences of male partners of women with breast cancer. The role of the male partner supporting the woman with breast cancer, and the potential concerns he may have, will be explored. It will also focus on the partners' experience of living with a woman with primary breast cancer. Finally, the partners' experience of living with a woman with a recurrence of metastatic breast cancer will be considered. Relevant literature is reviewed and critiqued to place current knowledge in context, including identifying areas for further research.
