A new study suggests that women are not the only ones impacted by breast cancer. The disease has tremendous impact on the entire family, especially their male partners. Danish researchers suggest that men are devastated when their wives or girlfriends are diagnosed with the disease. Male partners were found to be 40% more likely to be hospitalized for severe depression and anxiety. For these men, the stress comes from many factors including the fear of losing their loved one, the loss of their own identity and the disruption in their daily schedules.
