Cancer Survivors Also Live With Distress

Cancer Survivors Also Live With Distress

'To say that a diagnosis of cancer can be stressful for patients is putting it mildly, and the rigors of treatment often add to the burden. Yet more than half of adult cancer survivors report that they have never used or been offered professional counseling, support groups, or other services to help them cope with psychologic distress.

Overall, 55.1% said their provider had never discussed professional counseling or support groups with them, and they had never used such services, and 31.4% said they had discussed it with their provider but did not get help.'
