Key Words Anxiety; Cancer patients; Depression; Nepal; Prevalence
Core Tip A cancer diagnosis sparks fear, and those with this condition commonly exhibit greater psychological and emotional stress levels than the general population. Most cancer patients may face psychological problems due to the unavailability of appropriate services in middle and low-income countries like Nepal. We conducted a cross-sectional study among 220 cancer patients to assess the prevalence of depression and anxiety through standard tools. This study found a high prevalence of depression and some anxiety among the patients and suggested that physicians organize counseling services and cancer therapy in hospitals.
