BACKGROUND: Although the number of cancer survivors has increased substantially over the past several decades, the composition of survivors treated with radiotherapy is not well defined. Radiotherapy carries unique long-term toxicity risks for cancer survivors. This study describes the current estimates and future projections of the epidemiology of five-year cancer survivors who receive radiation therapy. METHODS: We used cancer incidence and survival data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End-Results (SEER) database linked to US Census data to estimate the number of five-year cancer survivors treated with radiation between 2000 and 2030...

The number of cancer survivors continues to increase because of both advances in early detection and treatment and the aging and growth of the population. For the public health community to better serve these survivors, the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute collaborate to estimate the number of current and future cancer survivors using data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results cancer registries. In addition, current treatment patterns for the most prevalent cancer types are presented based on information in the National Cancer Data Base and treatment-related side effects are briefly described...

Receptive endometrium is essential for successful implantation and ongoing pregnancy. Significant health issues and associated therapies, especially oncologic therapies, have potential to negatively impact future fertility in young women. Irradiation and chemotherapeutic alkylating agents are known to cause ovarian failure in most females; however, less well is characterized the impact of irradiation on uterine development and integrity. With an increasing number of cancer survivors, women are seeking infertility treatment after such therapies...

BACKGROUND: Endometrial cancer survivors comprise a high-risk group for obesity-related comorbidities. Healthy eating and physical activity can lead to better health and well-being, but this population may experience difficulties adopting healthy lifestyle practices. Personalised behaviour change programmes that are feasible, acceptable and cost-effective are needed. The aim of this trial is to pilot a manualised programme about healthy eating and physical activity. METHODS/DESIGN: This is a phase II, individually randomized, parallel, controlled, two-site, pilot clinical trial...

BACKGROUND: Patient navigation (PN) is a patient-centered health-care service delivery model that assists individuals, particularly the medically underserved, in overcoming barriers (e.g., personal, logistical, and system) to care across the cancer care continuum. In 2012, the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (CoC) announced that health-care facilities seeking CoC-accreditation must have PN processes in place starting January 1, 2015. The CoC mandate, in light of the recent findings from centers within the Patient Navigation Research Program and the influx of PN interventions, warrants the present literature review...

INTRODUCTION: Radiotherapy or radical hysterectomy with salpingo-oophorectomy (SOE) as treatment for uterine cervical cancer causes estrogen deprivation in premenopausal women. The effects on androgen production have rarely been examined but could be relevant for survivors of cervical cancer because insufficiency has been associated with low sexual function. AIM: To investigate the effects of pelvic radiotherapy, hysterectomy with SOE, or surgery without SOE on androgen levels and to explore potential associations with sexual function...

PURPOSE: Oral, breast, and cervical cancers are amenable to early detection and account for a third of India's cancer burden. We convened a symposium of diverse stakeholders to identify gaps in evidence, policy, and advocacy for the primary and secondary prevention of these cancers and recommendations to accelerate these efforts. METHODS: Indian and global experts from government, academia, private sector (health care, media), donor organizations, and civil society (including cancer survivors and patient advocates) presented and discussed challenges and solutions related to strategic communication and implementation of prevention, early detection, and treatment linkages...

OBJECTIVES: To compare comorbidities of women with uterine cancer (UC) to controls so as to aid in development of survivorship care plans and programs. METHODS: Retrospective cohort study using the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC) database that compared women who had a hysterectomy for UC to women without UC undergoing hysterectomy. Frequencies and odds ratios (ORs) of 26 comorbidities were calculated. Mantel-Haenszel stratified ORs were determined to correct for different age distributions between the UC and control groups using UHC predetermined age groups...

Survivors of pediatric and young adult cancers remain at risk for subsequent diseases, including those related to human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Prevention of HPV acquisition through vaccination has become possible over the last decade. HPV vaccines have been shown to be safe and effective, yet rates of vaccination among childhood cancer survivors have remained low. Multiple factors, including stronger advocacy for this intervention from providers, could potentially increase vaccination and lead to lower HPV disease burdens for childhood cancer survivors...

BACKGROUND: Cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF), a strong predictor of mortality, is impaired among cancer patients. There is limited data, however, regarding CRF levels in women diagnosed with gynecologic cancers. METHODS: We compared CRF among ovarian, endometrial, and cervical cancer cases (n=89) to age-matched controls (n=89) in the Cooper Center Longitudinal Study (CCLS). CRF was evaluated by a maximal treadmill exercise tolerance test using a modified-Balke protocol...

Rates of breast and cervical cancer screening among Latinas are suboptimal. The Esperanza y Vida program was developed to increase awareness of screening methods among Latinas. Lay health advisor cancer survivors are trained to deliver the program and use a narrative communication approach to promote breast and cervical cancer awareness and screening. This study aimed to identify characteristics of participants, within the larger study, who were lost, due to attrition, for follow-up assistance. Participants (N = 908) completed questionnaires that assessed knowledge, perceptions, and beliefs about breast and cervical cancer and were contacted after the program to assess screening and offer assistance in obtaining screening exams...

Due to high cure rate in childhood and adolescent cancer, fertility preservation is a major concern. Chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery may alter gonadal function, and uterine cavity in women. In women, combined toxicity affecting both endocrine function and ovulation are observed leading to premature ovarian insufficiency. In men, spermatogenesis is frequently affected whereas endocrine function is almost always preserved. The current article focuses on investigations concerning gonadal function after treatment for a cancer during childhood or adolescence and treatment of subsequent infertility or hypogonadism...
