However, studies involving other types of primary tumors would be useful because seven of the eight clinical trials only included breast cancer patients.

Background: Pain, depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, and constipation were reported in different symptom clusters at different stages of breast cancer. Managing symptom clusters rather than individual symptoms can improve performance status. Aim: The study examined the effect of pain symptom cluster (pain and constipation) on performance when mediated by the psychoneurological symptom cluster (depression, anxiety, and sleep disturbances) using age as a moderator. Design: A secondary analysis.
