Information about the emotional effects of cancer

Today, there are 18 million cancer patients and survivors in the United States.1 Nearly half of cancer patients experience psychosocial distress, anxiety, or depression.two Left untreated, these moods can reduce a cancer survivor’s quality of life and can negatively affect survival.3 The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) has developed guidelines for providing mental health care services to patients with cancer, including screening patients for signs of distress and implementing a treatment plan to address these needs with a mental health professional.4 Unfortunately, less than half of patients who experience cancer-related distress, which can be defined as any unpleasant mood, emotion, or experience that affects a patient’s quality of life or ability to cope with cancer diagnosis and treatment, are referred to mental health professionals.5.6 Prescribing digital therapies designed to treat cancer-related distress may help fill this gap in cancer treatment.
