In this issue there were a number of studies about the psychosocial aspects of cancer. For instance, Yu and Bernstein found that patients with brain tumors prefer to have all of the information that they can when it comes to treatment-related decision making, even if they ultimately let their doctor decide. Xu et al. found that when men with prostate cancer weighed the pros and cons of any particular treatment, they ultimately made the best decision that they felt they could based on the information given to them. Schmid-Buchi and colleagues found that cancer patients and their relatives needed additional psychological support after patients had finished their treatment. In other studies, Truong and associates reported that moderate-intensity walking was safe and beneficial for patients with prostate cancer undergoing radical external beam radiotherapy. Parry and associates reported that reducing one’s fat intake may prevent breast cancer. Stevens et al. found that intake of high levels of folate reduced the risk of colorectal cancer, and could not find evidence to indicate that supplementation or fortification increased the risk. Jang and colleagues reported that women who smoked and had cancer had a worse quality of life than those who had cancer but had either never smoked, or had quit smoking. Jane and associates found that massage therapy was useful for cancer patients with metastatic bone pain. In our study of the month, Vrieling et al. found that a lower level of vitamin D is associated with poorer overall survival and disease-free survival in postmenopausal breast cancer patients.
