Cancer is a challenging experience and there is evidence that psychosocial interventions are effective at improving adjustment following treatment. At our cancer center, 14 cancer survivors (breast, prostate and blood cancers) completed a four-session cognitive-behavioral stress program.
Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and overactive bladder (OAB) symptoms have a substantial effect on quality of life (QoL). We report QoL and mental health results from a LUTS prevalence study in three Asian countries.
Depression in men with prostate cancer is a significant and complex issue that can challenge clinicians' diagnostic efforts. The objective of the current study was to evaluate prototypic and male-specific depression symptoms and suicidal ideation in men with a diagnosis of prostate cancer relative to those with and without comorbidity.
Although the association between nocturia and depressive symptoms has been demonstrated, the causal direction remains unclear. Our aim was to investigate the directional association between nocturia and depressive symptoms using longitudinal data from the general population.
By surveying men who are currently infertile ( N = 251) and men who are potentially infertile (i.e., men with cancer; N = 195), the mental health consequences of reproductive masculinity, or the cultural assumption that men are virile and should be fathers, were investigated.
Although the majority of bladder cancer literature has been dedicated to optimizing oncological outcomes and focuses on physical prognostic criteria such as nutritional and performance status, emerging data has suggested that both pre- and post-treatment mental health may play as important a role in patient outcomes as physical health.
The goal of this study was to compare the urge perception associated with nocturnal voiding at the time of voiding in individuals with and without depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or anxiety diagnoses to test the hypothesis that patients with such diagnoses are more likely to experience insomnia-driven convenience voiding during the sleep period.
PURPOSE - Psychological distress has been associated with impaired immune response and poor wound healing. We hypothesized that preoperative patient-reported mental health would be associated with high-grade 30-day complications after radical cystectomy (RC).
Objectives Depression following pregnancy is common, but its extent and association with maternal morbidity in the first 6 months postpartum have not been well described in low resource settings such as rural Bangladesh.
To assess the impact of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) on individual components of quality of life (QoL) using both condition-specific and generic questionnaires, and to compare the results of the two instruments with a control group.
To examine a self-regulation and coping model for IC/BPS that may help us understand the pain experience of chronic IC/BPS patients.
The model tested illness perceptions, illness-focused coping, emotional regulation, mental health and disability in stepwise method using factor analysis and structural equation modeling.
To evaluate the relationship between personality and emotional distress in prostate cancer. Neuroticism and introversion were hypothesized to be associated with clinically significant symptoms of emotional distress, including depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideation.
Urogenital symptoms are prevalent in older women, but there is little data available on the prevalence, bother, impact and associations with low back pain (LBP), obesity, parity, mental health (MH) and quality of life (QOL) in young women.
