Lifestyle and breast- and gynaecologic cancers

23 Sep 2014

Lifestyle takes into account many dimensions involving the physical, mental, social, economic and spiritual aspects. The diagnosis of cancer for any individual therefore affects some or all of the dimensions involved with lifestyle. Almost 13 million people worldwide are diagnosed with cancer each year and about 8 million will die from the disease. However, with advances in the detection and treatment, it is estimated that over 25 million people are alive with a past diagnosis of cancer.
