People with cancer have much higher rates of depression and anxiety. Patients who suffer from anxiety and depression often have an inferior quality of life, suffer more pain and have a harder time keeping up with their cancer treatment schedule. With appropriate treatment, these patients can have an improved quality of life and are able to manage their treatment. Some studies suggest there are better outcomes in cancer care when depression and anxiety are addressed and treated. Please click here to visit our Oncology Specialty Program.
