Description:
Most patients and their families worry when diagnosed with cancer. This is normal and understandable. However at least 25% of patients develop psychological ill health, usually depression and anxiety. Psychological and social (psychosocial) problems can have a negative effect on a patient's quality of life and possibly on longevity. Untreated psychosocial morbidity can lead to impaired response to treatment and adverse clinical outcomes. Treating these disorders may improve disease outcomes.
