Prostate Cancer (CaP) is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Cameroonian men. Due to inadequate infrastructure, record keeping, and resources, little is known about its true burden on the population. There are rural/urban disparities with regards to awareness, screening, treatment, and survivorship. Furthermore, use of traditional medicine and homeopathic remedies is widespread, and some men delay seeking conventional medical treatment until advanced stages of CaP. This study examined the perceptions, beliefs, and practices of men in Cameroon regarding late stage CaP diagnoses; identified factors that influence screening decision; and ascertained how men decided between traditional or conventional medicine for CaP diagnosis and treatment...

Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) is a universally fatal childhood cancer of the brain. Despite the introduction of conventional chemotherapy and radiotherapy, improvements in survival have been marginal and long-term survivorship is uncommon. Thus, new targets for therapeutics are critically needed. Early phase clinical trials exploring molecularly-targeted therapies against the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and novel immunotherapies targeting interleukin receptor-13α2 (IL-13Rα2) have demonstrated activity in this disease...

Objective: Reliable and valid needs assessment measures are important assessment tools in cancer survivorship care. A new 30-item short-form version of the Survivor Unmet Needs Survey (SF-SUNS) was developed and validated with cancer survivors, including hematology cancer survivors; however, test-retest reliability has not been established. The objective of this study was to assess the test-retest reliability of the SF-SUNS with a cohort of lymphoma survivors ( n = 40). Methods: Test-retest reliability of the SF-SUNS was conducted at two time points: baseline (time 1) and 5 days later (time 2)...

BACKGROUND: Family caregivers (FCGs) of adult cancer patients (ACPs) are typically involved in the entire trajectory of cancer disease, from diagnosis to survivorship or end of life. In developing countries, FCGs are more intensely involved in the process of providing care to the hospitalized ACPs because of lack of adequate cancer care resources. Active performance of tasks to meet the needs of ACPs in the hospital setting is likely to elicit significant caregiver burden. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to explore the tasks performed and the caregiver burden experienced by FCGs of hospitalized ACPs in a sub-Saharan country...

Wei-Wen Wu, Kuan-Chia Lin, Shu-Yuan Liang, Shiann-Tarng Jou
BACKGROUND: Prior studies identifying symptom clusters used a symptom-centered approach to demonstrate the relationship among symptoms. Latent profile analysis (LPA) is a patient-centered approach that classifies individuals from a heterogeneous population into homogeneous subgroups, helping prioritize interventions to focus on clusters with the most severe symptom burden. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to use LPA to determine the best-fit models and to identify phenotypes of severe symptom distress profiles for adolescents with cancer who are undergoing treatment and in survivorship...

BACKGROUND: More young people are surviving treatment for cancer than ever before. Survival can have an adverse impact on their transition to adulthood. Discourses of cancer are applied to cancer survivors of all ages, but they manifest differently for young people. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe practices of self-representation in an online Web site that supports young Australian cancer survivors. METHOD: We conducted a discourse analysis of images and text produced by young cancer survivors (aged 18-35 years) on a public cancer charity Web site...
