Breast Cancer in Zimbabwe

A post of mine about cancer care available in Zimbabwe following my March 2011 trip led to interesting comments from readers that focused mainly on the problem of cervical cancer. Is breast cancer also a problem in Zimbabwe? For example: 

  • What is its prevalence and treatment?
  • What are the perceptions and treatment of the disease and how do they differ in urban vs rural areas?
  • Is stigma a problem?
  • Are there support groups to help women (and men) cope with breast cancer?
  • Are there any studies under way or planned that relate to breast cancer?

Your comments are welcome and might help others.

Thanks, and I hope all is well…Darrell
