This book examines in detail the psychosocial impacts of cancer and its management, explaining the relevance of psycho-oncology during all stages from diagnosis and treatment through to cancer.

    Elderly patients with cancer face unique physical and psychiatric challenges in coping with their illness. Interventions specifically tailored to older adults with cancer are reviewed in this chapter, as well as several interventions which have proven effective in community dwelling older adults and palliative care patients, which may be adapted/modified for use in the geriatric oncology setting. However, the challenge with cancer is that it is not a single disease (prostate cancer, for example, is different from lung cancer in its impact), and even for a particular cancer site, individuals’ specific psychosocial health care needs may vary (e.g., in early-stage versus advanced disease).
