Have you just been diagnosed with cancer? Do you know somebody who has been diagnosed with cancer? Is anxiety, fear, disbelief and distress affecting you right now?
In a 2015 human clinical study conducted Aboalela et al and published in PLos One, a large group of women diagnosed with breast cancer who manifested prolonged stress, depression and anxiety not only had a compromised quality of life, but a more difficult outcome when compared with other women who were able to overcome the initial fear. Research data has been shown that stress is a significant predictor of chromosomal instability.This is a continuous accumulation of chromosome changes in cancer cell population, decreasing the ability to self-eliminate.
