EastEnders confirms male breast cancer storyline for Stuart Highway in emotional scenes

EASTENDERS has revealed a male breast cancer storyline for Stuart Highway in emotional scenes.

The BBC soap has been working closely with Macmillan Cancer Support on the plot that has seen Stuart receive the devastating news that he has breast cancer.

Last week on EastEnders, Stuart Highway visited a doctor about a rash he has on his chest. 

At the appointment, the doctor noticed a lump and sent him for a biopsy. After further testing, Stuart was officially diagnosed with male breast cancer in tonight’s episode. 

Viewers watched as Stuart struggled to take in the information as the doctor broke the news to him.

Over the next few months, Stuart will face challenges as he battles with his diagnosis and opening up to his wife Rainie.

Actor Ricky Champ said: “I feel honoured to be trusted with such an important storyline. 

“We will see Stuart really struggle with the fact he has cancer, and to learn that it’s breast cancer is really difficult for him to understand. 

“I hope by shedding a light on male breast cancer, more men will be aware of it and seek out a doctor if they notice anything wrong.”
