Breast Cancer: Males

Volume 494: debated on Thursday 25 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what steps he is taking to improve services for men with breast cancer; (281626)

(2) what recent representations he has received on breast cancer in men.

No recent representations have been received on male breast cancer.

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) published “Improving Outcomes in Breast Cancer” guidance in 2002, which addresses services and treatments for breast cancer patients, including men.

In February 2009, NICE also published guidance on the treatment and diagnosis of early and locally advanced breast cancer, and advanced breast cancer, which complement the cancer service guidance.
