Life of Cancer Survivor
Early tumor detection strategies, effective treatments, and follow-up care have contributed to increased cancer survival, although optimal cancer care will always need to be updated in light of new evidence, and disparities between and within countries still need to be addressed. From acute to extended and permanent survival, patients living after their cancer diagnosis face treatment and its acute, long-term, and late complications, uncertainties, fears, and loneliness. While feeling different with cancer sequelae, they struggle to return to an enjoyable life with a job or pursuing education, living with family, friends, and the whole of society. In addition to adapting to post-cancer life and changes in life perspectives and relationships, how society responds to a cancer survivor may also lead to increased difficulties for cancer survivors, namely cancer-related stigma and financial problems. In young cancer survivors, the negative effects of cancer treatments on sexual life and fertility can also affect the possibility of having children. This topic aims to gather research studies on cancer's consequences on different life dimensions of cancer survivors.
