Controlled Prospective Longitudinal Study of Women with Cancer II: Psychological Outcomes.
Andersen, Barbara L.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v57 n6 p692-97 Dec 1989
Studied 65 women treated for early cancer, 22 women treated for benign disease, and 60 healthy women. Findings revealed that subjects with life-threatening diagnoses reacted with transitory depression, anxiety, and confusion. Cancer patients retained employment, significantly reducing working hours during recovery. Found no evidence for higher incidence of relationship dissolution among cancer patients, no evidence for impaired social adjustment. (Author/NB)
