Resumo

MUTEBI, M  e  EDGE, J. Stigma, survivorship and solutions: Addressing the challenges of living with breast cancer in low-resource areas. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2014, vol.104, n.5, pp.382-382. ISSN 2078-5135.

Breast cancer in developing nations is characterised by late diagnosis. The causes are multifactorial and many are addressed in other articles in this edition of CME. Breast cancer is also seen in younger women. The late-presentation trend is slowly changing in some areas, and an increasing number of women are presenting with early disease. These patients, if managed appropriately, have a more favourable prognosis. As a result, developing nations must now begin to consider the concerns of breast cancer survivorship. In developed countries, there are a number of organisations that support breast cancer survivors. In this article, we highlight some of the psychosocial aspects of living with breast cancer in low-resource areas.
