Correlation of stress and depression with cancer initiation and progression; a mechanistic review

In conclusion, the importance of preventive interventions to monitor patients' mental health during cancer treatment is very significant and should not be underestimated. In other words, the initial interventions can improve depressive symptoms and increase cancer survival. On the other hand, by identifying key biomarkers of depression, physicians can identify cancer patients who are at risk for depression or those who may not respond to routine treatments. Understanding how the cancer environment can cause pathophysiological phenomena helps develop new anti-depressant therapies and identify cancer patients that may be present during cancer. It can also help if the patients with cancer are prone to depression.PMID:36154570 | DOI:10.2174/1389450123666220922094403
