Associations between prostate cancer-related anxiety and health-related quality of life.
This study followed prostate cancer patients who were enrolled in the cohort study North Cancer Prostate Cancer Comparative Effectiveness & Survivorship Study (NC ProCess) from January 2011 and June 2013. A 1-year follow-up survey was done to assess prostate cancer-related anxiety (PCRA) in the cohort. The researchers were interested in the association between PCRA and health-related quality of life (HRQOL). The risk of probable depression was significantly higher in participants with clinically significant PCRA compared with those without it.
