However, a growing body of research shows that stress-related psychosocial factors play a role in cancer progression – that is, the rate at which an existing cancer in the body worsens or causes mortality. In this latter regard, studies.

    The hypothetical role of stress in the etiology of cancer is shown more clearly through the modification that this state exerts on the genetic-hereditary factor. It has been shown as socio-environmental events print a genetic mutation that facilitates the growth of the neoplasia; within these factors . imagined. Psychological factors both influence and are influenced by physical func-tioning (Jones, ; Ryffa et al., ). Psychologists who study the interrelationships between psychological factors and physical health are called health psychologists. The study of the relationships between mind and body bring us to examining the role.

In conclusion, when the biological, psychological, and behavioral factors were separately tested using the logistic regression forward-LR analysis, it was found that the breast cancer risk was associated with advanced age, BMI (>25 kg/m 2), family history of cancer, existence of a stressor experienced in the last 5 years of the premorbid period Cited by: 2.

The etiology of a large proportion of breast cancers is still unexplained, and the possibility that psychosocial factors could play a role is not ruled out.

Already in pre-Christian times, it was assumed that psychological factors might play a significant role in the development of breast by:   Psychological or psychosocial stress has been emerging as one of the key factors associated with cancer initiation, growth, and metastasis. Accumulating data, however, has mainly focused on cancer progression due to the inconsistent results of cancer etiology caused by emotional stress.

Depression is closely linked to stress and induces hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis Cited by: 6. Psychological distress (symptoms of depression and anxiety) was related to higher cancer-specific mortality and poorer cancer survival but not to increased cancer : Naoki Nakaya. Psychological Treatment of Patients With Cancer offers a succinct but comprehensive guide to psycho-oncological practice.

Designed to build a foundation of knowledge that tackles the depth and breadth of the field, this volume includes a range of psychological interventions aimed at helping patients cope with cancer treatment. Psychological stress describes what people feel when they are under mental, physical, or emotional pressure.

Although it is normal to experience some psychological stress from time to time, people who experience high levels of psychological stress or who experience it repeatedly over a long period of time may develop health problems (mental and/or physical).

Abstract. Sleep is essential for survival and plays a key role in maintaining our physical and mental health. Over the past 40 years, the field of sleep medicine has increasingly focused on the role sleep disturbances have in the etiology of medical and psychological disorders and has proposed various methods of classifying sleep disorders as distinct clinical entities or as conditions.

Introduction. Breast cancer is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality among women; it is the second leading cause of death due to cancer in women, exceeded only by lung cancer (American Cancer Society ) [].The fact that patients with apparently similar tumours at the time of presentation differ significantly in the time of relapse and overall survival implies that the determinants.

ABSTRACT. The dried leaf of the plant Rosmarinus officinalis L. possesses potent flavor and antioxidant activity and is widely used as a spice and food additive.

In short term animal studies, topical application of a methanol extract of leaves of Rosmarinus officinalis L. (rosemary extract) to the backs of CD-1 mice inhibited the formation of [3 H]benzo[a]pyrene (BP)-DNA adducts in mouse. Homeobox (HOX) transcription factors, encoded by a subset of homeodomain superfamily genes, play pivotal roles in many aspects of cellular physiology, embryonic development, and tissue homeostasis.

Findings over the past decade have revealed that mutations in HOX genes can lead to increased cancer predisposition, and HOX genes might mediate the effect of many other cancer susceptibility.

Although there are no biomarkers for BPD, behavioral genetic research shows that it is about 50% heritable. Lung cancer is the second most common cancer1 accounting for the largest number of cancer-related deaths worldwide.

Limited improvements have been achieved in this cancer by therapy over the past decades, with the 5-year survival rate being only 16%.2 Patients with lung cancer may suffer from variable degrees of functional impairments that affect their quality-of–life (QOL) adversely.

Many studies have failed to find any association between psychological factors and cancer, and findings of even the high quality studies have been inconsistent. To date there is insufficient evidence to conclude that psychological factors play a significant and direct role in disease processes in cancer.

Cancer, an international interdisciplinary journal of the American Cancer Society, publishes high-impact, peer-reviewed original articles and solicited content on the latest clinical research issue of Cancer strives to be comprehensive, spanning the breadth of oncology disciplines and providing something for everyone involved in cancer research, risk reduction, treatment, and.

The impact of psychological factors is increasingly taken into consideration in cancer patient care. In this review, we focus on the explicative models and the factors involved in psychosocial.

Four examples are given hereafter: a prospective study on the psychogenesis of cancer, the question of cancer-prone personalities, the incidence of psychosocial factors on survival in advanced malignant diseases, and a study focused on bereavement and cancer.
