Breast and gynecological cancer patients' risk factors associated with biopsychosocial problem ‐related distress

Abstract ObjectivesInequalities exist between breast and gynecological cancer patients' experiences, leading to high levels of distress throughout the cancer journey. The present study aims to identify differences in source of biopsychosocial problem‐related distress between women diagnosed with breast or gynecological cancers. MethodsFrom 2009 to 2016, women with breast (n = 2111) and gynecological (n = 641) cancers were screened using the core items of the instrument You, Your Family, and City of Hope are a Team. This is a touch screen–based instrument that assess problem‐related distress due to physical, practical, functional, emotional, and other problems and identifies types of assistance requested. Data were analyzed using the linear regression model. ResultsA significant difference in overall biopsychosocial problems rated as high distress was found between breast (M = 5.0) and gynecological (M = 6.2) cancer patients (P

This study's researchers approached all people turning 85 in 2006 in two cities in the UK for participation. At the beginning of the study in 2006-2007, there were 722 participants, 60 percent of whom were women. The participants provided researchers with information about what they ate every day, their body weight and height measurements, their overall health assessment (including any level of disability), and their medical records. The researchers learned that more than one-quarter (28 percent) of very old adults had protein intakes below the recommended dietary allowance. The researchers noted that older adults w...

CONCLUSIONS: In this matched cohort study, the cardiac risk after adjuvant RT increased with decreasing physical activity. The long-term effect of physical activity on ACE is uncertain, but these results can increase physicians' awareness of the approaches to increase exercise participation level among women undergoing RT for breast cancer. Confirmatory studies with individual doses of cardiac radiation and quantification of physical activity and sedentary time are required for validating our results.

Abstract Cigarette smoking harms nearly every organ of the body and causes adverse health consequences, including heart disease, stroke, and multiple types of cancer (1). Although cigarette smoking among U.S. adults has declined considerably, tobacco products have evolved in recent years to include various combustible, noncombustible, and electronic products (1,2). To assess recent national estimates of tobacco product use among U.S. adults aged ≥18 years, CDC, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the National Institutes of Health's National Cancer Institute analyzed data from the 2017 National Health In...

ConclusionsIn Spain, the costs of cancer were mainly borne by the hospital and these costs might increase in the future due to the expected increase in longevity. Further research would be needed to investigate whether it is possible to redistribute the economic burden of cancer.

Aspirin is best known as an over-the-counter painkiller. But acetylsalicylic acid, as it’s called chemically, has many other health benefits, as well as side effects, in the body that have only become clear in recent years. Here’s what the latest science says about the health benefits and side effects of aspirin, as well as which conditions it may treat and those it doesn’t appear to improve. (If you are taking aspirin for any reason other than for periodic pain relief, it’s best to consult with your doctor to confirm whether the benefits outweigh the risks in your particular case.) How aspirin affe...

Paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration (PCD) is characterized by pancerebellar ataxia with diplopia, nystagmus and dysarthria that might evolve subacutely or over months to years [1 –8]. Blurred vision and oscillopsia typically occur early in the disease, often preceding the manifestations of the primary malignancy [1–8]. Malignancies most commonly associated with PCD include gynecologic, breast, small cell lung cancers, Hodgkin's lymphoma [1–8]. The combination of tumour s and neurologic disability suggests the occurrence of effective antitumour autoimmunity, especially in cases with associated antibodie...
