Women and cancer: coping with changes after cancer treatment
Tamsin Newton Snow Health writer
Our series on how nurses can improve their support for different patient populations with cancer continues with this article focusing on women
Women are less likely to get, and die from, cancer than men. More than half (54%) of women diagnosed with cancer during 2010 in England and Wales are predicted to survive for more than ten years, compared with 46% of men (Cancer Research UK (CRUK) 2014).
