Replace She with He

In the Netherlands, a country with more than 17 million inhabitants, 100 men are diagnosed with breast cancer each year.

Most people are not aware that men get this ‘female disease’: friends and family react surprised; brochures and patient information leaflets are written with the female patient in mind. In the waiting room, these men are called “Mrs.” when an off-guard hospital staff reads the patient list out loud.

What is it like for men to suffer from breast cancer? With my series I want to show the people behind these male patients. Because they also want to be treated the right way when they discover a small lump on their chest. Because they want to be taken seriously as a patient.
