Men urged to talk about their cancer

IT'S good to talk - especially if you have life-threatening cancer.

Recent research found a quarter of male sufferers never speak about the disease with a family member or friend, but Andrew Anderson from Maggie's Centres says they should.

The centres offer a lifeline to sufferers and Mr Anderson says: "Men say they are concerned about talking about cancer because they fear the emotions that may come."

But Mr Anderson says once victims visit a Maggie's Centre they find vulnerability is not weakness and it leads to a a better sens of their situation.
