    Of the patients analyzed, 91 percent completed a pre-treatment quality of life questionnaire. Patients with a quality of life score less than the median () had a 69% higher rate of death.   These have resulted in many more years of life after diagnosis and improved quality of life for patients living with metastatic prostate cancer. The majority of these treatments can cause health side effects such as increased body fat, increased risk of diabetes, elevated cholesterol and increased risk of heart attacks.

Prostate cancer treatments have significant detrimental effects on patients’ quality of life, and these effects may have been downplayed or not fully appreciated, according to a presentation at the virtual annual congress of the European Association of Urology (EAU).

With the introduction and growing acceptance of the biopsychosocial model of health it is becoming increasingly common to assess the quality of life of patients before, during, or after serious illness, pain, or surgery.

When curative treatments are no longer options for dying cancer patients, the focus of care often turns from prolonging life to promoting quality-of-life (QOL).

1 In the Institute of Medicine issued a report on improving care at the end-of-life (EOL). 2 The report stated that in order to ensure better care at the EOL, researchers needed to fill gaps in knowledge about the EOL. This research trial studies quality of life outcome measures in patients with head and neck cancer who had reconstructive surgery.

Collecting surveys, questionnaires, and focus group information on how patients felt about their preparation and expectations before and after surgery may help improve patient quality of life. In a paper 1 published in The Lancet Oncology, Dr Andrew Bottomley, EORTC Assistant Director and Head of the Quality of Life Department, EORTC, Brussels, Belgium, together with colleagues from seven countries, report the findings of a meta-analysis of 44 clinical trials carried out between and on patients with cancer that report QoL.

Breast cancer and its treatments lead to a decrease in patients’ quality of life (QOL). This systematic review aimed to assess the effectiveness of so-called alternative medicine on the QOL of women with breast cancer.

A total of 28 clinical trials were included in the systematic review, 18 of which were randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Quality of life may predict survival. In addition to clinical variables, it may be influenced by psychological factors, some of which may be accessible for intervention.

One of the key factors controlling the Quality of life (QOL) in many diseases is Anemia, which needs addressing, as it leads to co-morbidities and is an important parameter in optimal QOL.

In our study we have found about % of the cancer patients invariably developed anemia most of them were at various stages of the disease.Health-related quality of life (QoL) indicates the patients' perception of their health.

It depends not only on disease- and treatment-related factors but also on complex inter-relationships of expectations, values and norms, psychologic distress, and comparison with other patients.
