How sexual orientation affects cancer survivorship

One of my current projects is an upcoming Stanford Medicine article on cancer survivorship. (Given a recent report showing there are more than 12 million former patients in the United States, I thought it was a timely topic.) I took notice, then, of a new study in the journal Cancer describing the differences between straight and gay cancer survivors. Among them: Lesbian and bisexual survivors are more than twice as likely to report fair or poor health after cancer than are heterosexual ones.

MSNBC.com has a nice write-up here.
