Cancer care in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer populations.
Future Oncol 2017; 13(15):1333-1344FO

Abstract

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) populations experience health and healthcare disparities that may place them at higher risk for developing cancer. In addition, LGBTQ communities have psychosocial factors, such as fear of discrimination, that have substantial impacts on their medical care. As a result, these populations have specific needs with regard to cancer screening, treatment and support that must be addressed by cancer care providers. Although much has been done to address cancer care in the general population, more improvement is needed in the care of LGBTQ patients. We aim to present an overview of the current state of LGBTQ cancer care, opportunities for improvement and how cancer centers and providers can create a better future for the care of LGBTQ cancer patients.
