The psycho-social aspects related to cancer are just as important as its physical factors. We understand that each patient experiences cancer and its associated complications differently, depending on their socio-economic situation and their emotional characteristics.
The psycho-oncology unit considers cancer-related aspects that are not usually covered in the oncology and palliative care consultations. Aesthetic damage, emotional loss, reactions to functional deficits, patrimonial losses or internal conflicts caused directly or indirectly by cancer can seriously condition how the disease evolves. Sometimes the patient does not feel capable of facing cancer, their prognosis and all the consequences that it could have on their future or the toxic affects of the cancer treatment.
Our oncological psychologists will be your emotional support and help you face the conflicts associated with being diagnosed with and treating cancer. Do not hesitate to request their services if you feel you need them.
