Depression may worsen cancer outcomes, study finds
Depressed head and neck cancer patients are less likely to survive the disease and more likely to have a recurrence of it, according to a new study conducted at the University of Texas. Smoking also had a significant effect on whether cancer came back, researchers reported in the new study, published in the journal Psychosomatic Medicine. However, depression was the only factor associated with survival rates.
