The recent suicides of highly regarded fashion designer Kate Spade and television celebrity chef and author Anthony Bourdain remind us this mental health crisis can touch anyone.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), suicide rates between 1999 and 2016 have risen more than 30 percent in half of the country and by nearly 60 percent in some states. This trend is particularly worrisome for cancer patients because this group has a higher suicide risk than the general public. For mesothelioma patients and the people who care for them, one part of this picture deser...

Authors: Zhuang H, Ma Y, Wang L, Zhang H Abstract Background: Patients with metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer (nsclc) experience great pain and stress. Our study aimed to explore the effect of early palliative care on quality of life in patients with nsclc. Methods: A total of 150 patients were randomly divided into two groups: control group with conventional care and study group with early palliative care. The quality of life (qol) rating scale and self-rating scale of life quality (sslq) were used to analyze the patients' quality of life. The Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale-D/A (hads-d/a) and Patien...

Conclusions Sedentary time and light intensity physical activity were significantly associated with some psychosocial health outcomes. Reducing sedentary time and increasing light intensity physical activity may be a more appropriate recommendation for many lung cancer survivors given their older age, poorer functional status, and reduced pulmonary capacity.

CONCLUSION Cognitive impairment can affect daily functioning, quality of life, and capacity to work in patients with cancer and those in remission. Consequently, cognitive assessment is now an important and necessary part of a comprehensive oncological care plan. Cancer-related cognitive impairment might be due to the direct effects of the cancer itself, nonspecific factors, or comorbid conditions that are independent of the disease and/or due to the adverse effects of the treatment or combination of treatments given for the disease. The prevalence and extent of cognitive impairment associated with cancer is recognized but...

This study will assess the effect of group TCC in postsurgery NSCLC survivors on VO2peak, lung function, and other aspects. The results of this study will eventually provide clinical proof of the application of TCC as one kind of exercise training for patients across the entire NSCLC continuum, as well as information on the safety and feasibility of exercise.Trial RegistrationChinese Clinical Trial Registry:ChiCTR-IOR-15006548.
