Scan-associated Distress May Be Persistent for Patients With NSCLC
Scan-associated distress, which is commonly experienced by patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), may impair quality of life.
Investigators surveyed 103 patients with recurrent/metastatic NSCLC treated at an academic medical center.
Among the respondents, 72.8% discussed a recent scan at the study visit and 83% reported some scan-associated distress.
Are you among the 83% that gets anxious from a scan? If so, how do you cope with this stress?
