Description:
The costs to the health services of the diagnosis and treatment of cancer are substantial. These costs have increased over the past decades and are expected to rise further in coming years with population ageing and advances in treatment. However, the economic burden of cancer does not fall only on the health services, but also on patients, their families, and society as a whole. Until recently, little has been known about the costs incurred by cancer patients and their families.
