Cancer-hit men in Wales 'more depressed'

Men with cancer in Wales, compared with women, are more depressed and anxious, research has suggested.

The charity Tenovus has said men find it more difficult to come to terms with having the disease but just one in five seek counselling.

It has said once men do receive support, 88% show a significant improvement in how they feel.

"We are a very difficult bunch to engage with, and our research has shown though when we are engaged the results are great for us," said service development manager at Tenovus Richard Pugh.
