Individuals who have been treated for cancer should see
the disease as a chronic disease and make life-changing changes. These
changes include psychosocial changes in addition to physical requirements such
as going to the office on time, taking the necessary medications, eating
properly, living in appropriate physical conditions, and doing appropriate
Given the known negative effects of stress on our health,
it is recommended that a person who has been treated for cancer choose a
lifestyle that is as far away from stress as possible or that can minimize
stress. People who do not feel well are offered to stay away from the
environment and relationships if possible and to participate in activities that
they will enjoy life, to spend quality time with their loved ones.
Scientific studies show that cancer is more common in
individuals with type C personality traits. Among the characteristics of
type C personality; not to say ‘no’ to others easily, to prioritize the
wishes and needs of others before the village, to be overly self-sacrificing,
not to be able to express one’s grief and anger so that no one is broken, to be
overly sensitive and responsible, to obey and be loyal to government figures
. can be considered. For this reason, cancer patients with type C
personality traits should be encouraged to express their feelings, thoughts,
desires and needs. They should be encouraged to behave “as well”
Every patient experiences cancer in their own
way. For this reason, the patient’s relatives often ask, “How are
you?”, “What do you need?” Asking questions like, showing
love, interest, value and compassion is like a psychological cure for cancer.
It is important to make these changes to protect against disease and improve quality of life.
