Abstract Although the majority of bladder cancer literature has been dedicated to optimizing oncological outcomes and focuses on physical prognostic criteria such as nutritional and performance status, emerging data has suggested that both pre- and post-treatment mental health may play as important a role in patient outcomes as physical health. In this review, we summarize the literature regarding the prognostic implications of mental illness on bladder cancer patients and review how both the diagnosis and treatment of bladder cancer can affect mental health across various disease states. Literature review via a m...

Experts say this is concerning for a number of reasons. Studies have linked the regular, long-term use of OTC sleep medicines to some potentially serious side effe...
