Why is the cancer patients’ education important?
Often, it happens to be diagnosed with a usual illness and to be afraid because we don’t have enough information about the symptoms or the treatment. The cancer is a complex disease and the quantity of information that a patient needs to assimilate is much bigger. In consequence, a patient, who has recently been diagnosed with cancer, can have a psychical reaction, adverse to the treatment simply because he wasn’t enough informed.
An informed patient will know how to fight for his life because he knows what he is facing, when a unaware patient will give up on fighting even before starting because of the misconceptions and the myths about the cancer. In order to overcome these concepts, a patient also needs advice from an oncology psychologist.
