In males, the BRCA gene mutation is linked to a higher risk of inherited breast and prostate cancer.
The purpose of this study is to explore if and how men’s bodies and sense of self are affected by the knowledge that they carry a BRCA mutation, and are therefore at greater risk for breast and prostate cancer. Information will be gathered through individual interviews.
This study aims to increase understanding about the experiences of men living with a BRCA gene mutation. Ultimately, it will inform and improve the health care services for BRCA gene mutation carriers.
At this time, recruitment has been closed.
