PURPOSE: Cancer diagnosis in adults is often accompanied by negative impacts, which increase the risk of depression thereby lowering health-related quality of life (HRQoL). We examined the association between depression treatment and HRQoL among US adults with cancer and depression. METHODS: Patients age 18 and above, with self-reported cancer and depression diagnoses were identified from Medical Expenditure Panel Survey database for 2006-2013. Baseline depression treatment was categorized as antidepressants only, psychotherapy with or without antidepressant use, and no reported use of antidepressants or psychotherapy...

PURPOSE: The number of cancer survivors has risen substantially due to improvements in early diagnosis and treatment. Health behaviours such as physical activity (PA) and diet can reduce recurrence and mortality, and alleviate negative consequences of cancer and treatments. Digital behaviour change interventions (DBCIs) have the potential to reach large numbers of cancer survivors. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review and meta-analyses of relevant studies identified by a search of Medline, EMBASE, PubMed and CINAHL...

Ray M Merrill, Erin Johnson
PURPOSE: The purpose of the paper is to assess the influence of marital status on conditional relative survival of cancer according to sex. METHODS: Analyses involved 779,978 males and 1,032,868 females diagnosed with 1 of 13 cancer types between 2000 and 2008, and followed through 2013. Data are from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program. Regression models were adjusted for age, sex, race, and tumor stage. RESULTS: Five-year relative survival conditional on years already survived is higher among married patients with less lethal cancers (oral cavity and pharynx, colon and rectum, breast, urinary bladder, kidney and renal pelvis, melanoma of the skin, thyroid, lymphoma)...
