Approximately 10% of the population is estimated to be lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). This population exhibits higher rates of cancer-related morbidity and mortality due to certain risk behaviors, nulliparity, hormone use, changed body image following gender reassignment surgery and decreased access to preventive, screening and therapeutic services. Participants will receive an overview of the barriers to care encountered by members of the LGBT community affected by or at risk for cancer and information and resources to better address these barriers and provide culturally sensitive, appropriate services to this population.
