Breast Cancer Survival Can Be Sabotaged by Loneliness
According to the study, published online in the journal Cancer, loneliness may sabotage long-term breast cancer survival. Researchers found that women who didn’t have strong social ties were more likely to have their cancer return or die from it compared to the women with the strong social network.
Having reviewed on nearly 10,000 breast cancer patients, the researchers linked isolation with 40% higher risk of cancer recurrence in women without social support. They also found that lonely women had a 60% higher risk of dying from breast cancer and 70% higher risk of dying from any cause.
Kassandra Alcaraz, strategic equity research at the American Cancer Society, says: “Having social ties may provide access to real assistance, like having someone to take you to the doctor or having someone to talk to you about your concerns or connecting you with the resources that can help you cope with cancer.”
