Cancer & Distress: A Discussion with Clinical Experts from MSKCC

Recommended Posts


A few weeks ago, a panel of patients and psycho-oncology experts from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center answered many questions regarding this topic. Questions like:

What is the difference between cancer-related distress and normal, everyday stress?

Does the treatment of cancer-related anxiety reduce a patient’s experience of physical pains that are associated with the disease?

Has the stress level of cancer patients risen due to compromised immune systems and COVID?

Is there such a thing as a stress roller-coaster that cancer patients experience?

Is there a difference between fear of “progression of cancer” and “fear of recurrence”?

How to ask for psycho-oncology help?
