EastEnders exit sealed as soap favourite ignores serious diagnosis?

Stuart Highway of EASTENDERS is unwilling to accept his breast cancer diagnosis. Is it possible that this blunder may cost him his life?

EastEnders is known for raising awareness of a variety of illnesses and conditions, and one recent plotline focuses on male breast cancer. Stuart (Ricky Champ) was recently diagnosed with the disease, but he has refused to tell his wife Rainie Highway (Tanya Franks) about it. Alexandra Haas, a radiation oncologist, spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk about the sickness and the dangers of disregarding a diagnosis.

Stuart’s first reaction after learning he had cancer was to storm out of the doctor’s office, defiant.

When Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) told him he had to leave, the Walford undertaker began drinking in The Vic to drown his sorrows and was helped out by Sonia (Natalie Cassidy).

Stuart ended up confiding in Sonia about his illness, but he has yet to tell his wife, Rainie, the truth.

Rainie became suspicious of her husband as she continued to check on him, but he eventually revealed that it was Sonia who had cancer.

Doctor Haas is an authority on the subject as a radiation oncologist at the Proton Therapy Center in Prague, Czech Republic.

She explained: “As with all cancer diagnoses, it is important to catch it as early as possible and before it spreads to other areas of the body.

“This is why people shouldn’t put off seeing a doctor.”

She added: “The chances of recovery for male breast cancer depend on how soon the cancer is detected.

“Women are more aware of their symptoms and are encouraged to keep an eye on any changes in their breasts.

“Men are less aware of the symptoms and, as a result, are more likely to delay seeking medical help.

“Due to the rarity of male breast cancer, treatment guidelines are usually extrapolated from data from clinical trials involving female patients.

“The vast majority of diagnosed cases are advanced stage ductal invasive carcinomas that express hormone receptors.”

They usually show as a painless retroareolar tumor that necessitates a triple examination.

“The diagnosis necessitates a high index of suspicion, owing to the rarity of such a disease in men.”

Dr. Haas offered the following advice to men who believe they may have observed indicators of breast cancer: “Seeking medical help for any changes in the body is nothing to be ashamed of.”

Call your doctor if you notice anything unusual. Breast cancer in men can be treated if caught early.”

Stuart from EastEnders, on the other hand, has been in denial for weeks.

Missing appointments and failing to receive therapy might have serious implications.

Could the favorite’s refusal to receive treatment be the final nail in his coffin?

Stuart may be too late to undergo cancer therapy as a result of his decision, and he may succumb to the disease.

Stuart’s death would be a heartbreaking twist in the couple’s quest to become parents, especially since he and Rainie are expecting a child.

  • Dr Haas explained: “Health and cancer can be difficult for some people to talk about.

    “It is a very personal issue and how open you are very much varies from person to person.

    “Some people feel as if they can’t speak to their friends and family as they don’t want to worry them.

    “I think it’s important for people to seek help from their support network.

    “Often when people start to open up, they find people share their own experiences which can provide comfort and reassurance.”

    “It’s really important to promote awareness of all cancers, especially the rarer ones,” the medical expert said of the soap’s handling of the subject.

    “Soaps such as EastEnders have a great platform to raise awareness and if this storyline helps one person, then it’s made a positive difference.”
