Impact of Cancer on Psychological Well-Being of Cancer Patients and Caregivers
Cancer, being a life-threatening disease, gives rise to mental tension, anxiety, and sometimes even depression. Most of the research regarding this topic is focused on patients so I have incorporated caregivers and survivors into my study. While research shows that mental concerns around cancer exist, the practice of seeking professional mental help is not very widespread. This paper explains the problems, ways to diagnose, tools used as well as general fears and worries. As a part of my study, I not only provide data for the prevalence of psychological problems but also include the patients’ and caregivers’ experiences at various stages. Dr. Rakesh, an oncologist, has also provided his expertise and experience for this study.
