Nur Izgu, Leyla Ozdemir, Fatma Bugdayci Basal
BACKGROUND: Patients receiving oxaliplatin may experience peripheral neuropathic pain and fatigue. Aromatherapy massage, a nonpharmacological method, may help to control these symptoms. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this open-label, parallel-group, quasi-randomized controlled pilot study was to investigate the effect of aromatherapy massage on chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathic pain and fatigue in patients receiving oxaliplatin. METHODS: Stratified randomization was used to allocate 46 patients to 2 groups: intervention (n = 22) and control (n = 24)...

Qiuping Li, Yi Lin, Ying Chen, Alice Yuen Loke
BACKGROUND: A diagnosis of cancer and its treatment affect couples as a unit, and they must cope and give each other mutual support as dyads. Few studies have focused explicitly on understanding mutual support among couples coping with colorectal cancer (CRC). OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to explore the mutual support of couples in their journey of coping together with CRC. METHODS: This is a qualitative descriptive study with purposeful sampling...

BACKGROUND: Breast cancer continues to be a major public health problem for women. Early detection and treatment are key to improved outcomes. Whereas most women seek help promptly, some postpone seeking help for self-discovered breast symptoms. Investigation of women's help-seeking behavior and the associated influencing factors on self-discovery of a breast symptom were sought. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this article is to report the qualitative data from women who had self-discovered a breast symptom...

Jian-Ning Wei, Shu-Xia Li
BACKGROUND: Measurement of cancer-related fatigue and nutrition in the same colorectal cancer patient group using fast-track surgery has never been examined previously. The association between fatigue and nutritional status in the same patient group is thus worthwhile to be investigated. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between fatigue and nutrition risk factors in colorectal cancer patients with fast-track surgery. METHODS: This is a single-arm, observational study...

BACKGROUND: Cancer survivors with good social support are generally more motivated to undertake self-management behaviors and make lifestyle changes. However, the impact of changes in social support over time, from prediagnosis through treatment and into survivorship, on the health and recovery of cancer survivors with a range of cancer diagnoses has not been explored. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to examine how temporal changes in social support offered to cancer survivors by family and friends influence their engagement with self-management practices and adaptation to lifestyle changes...

BACKGROUND: Breast cancer treatments can change women's hormonal milieu and alter their symptom experience. Little is known about associations between menopausal status and menopausal symptoms in women with breast cancer before surgery. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate for differences in occurrence, severity, and distress of symptoms between premenopausal and postmenopausal women before breast cancer surgery. METHODS: A total of 312 women with breast cancer completed the Menopausal Symptoms Scale, a self-report measure that evaluated the occurrence, severity, and distress of 46 common symptoms associated with menopause...
