Many Breast Cancer Patients May Forego Treatment Following Surgery Because They Lack Faith In Healthcare System, Survey Suggests.

HealthDay (11/6, Preidt) reports that a survey suggests “many breast cancer patients skip recommended treatment after surgery because they lack faith in the health care system.” The “survey found those who reported a general distrust of medical institutions and insurers were more likely to forgo follow-up breast cancer treatment, such as chemotherapy, hormone therapy or radiation.” Meanwhile, “trust or distrust of their own doctors did not emerge as a factor.” The findings were published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.
