Psychosocial outcomes of cancer: a comparative analysis of Hodgkin's disease and testicular cancer.

Psychosocial outcomes of cancer: a comparative analysis of Hodgkin's disease and testicular cancer. The psychosocial outcomes of testicular cancer and Hodgkin's disease were compared to test our hypotheses that more specific dysfunction and less hiding of symptoms would be found in the former group, as cancer visibly affects a sexual organ. Since those with Hodgkin's disease could more easily deny the disease, poorer psychosocial adjustment was predicted. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of clinical oncology : official journal of the American Society of Clinical Oncology Pubmed

Psychosocial outcomes of cancer: a comparative analysis of Hodgkin's disease and testicular cancer.


Abstract

The psychosocial outcomes of testicular cancer and Hodgkin's disease were compared to test our hypotheses that more specific dysfunction and less hiding of symptoms would be found in the former group, as cancer visibly affects a sexual organ. Since those with Hodgkin's disease could more easily deny the disease, poorer psychosocial adjustment was predicted.
