Recently, there has been a growing awareness of the multiple interrelationships between depression and cancer. Depression and Cancer is devoted to the interaction between these disorders. The book examines various aspects of this comorbidity and describes how the negative consequences of depression in cancer could be avoided or ameliorated, given that effective depression treatments for cancer patients are available. Renowned psychiatrists and oncologists summarize the latest evidence on the epidemiology, pathogenesis, screening and recognition, and cultural and public health implications of depression in persons with cancer, among other topics.
