Breast Cancer in women


In this section you can find out about women’s experiences of primary breast cancer by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 53 women in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as diagnosis, family & friends and body image. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
You may also be interested in our sections on breast screening, Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and Breast cancer in men. This section does not cover experiences of secondary breast cancer which we hope to cover in separate site in the future.
