ressive cancer, that the disease is more advanced when detected, or that the patients are older," she says.

What can be seen, however, is that cancer patients with other diseases do not receive the same treatment as other cancer patients. This is probably because they cannot tolerate the treatment quite as well and because they experience complications more often than other cancer patients. According to Mette Sgaard, it could nonetheless be interesting to investigate whether we use the right treatment.

"There are still a lot of unanswered questions - not least whether some of these patients are receiving too little treatment," she says.

Frede Olesen, chairman of the Danish Cancer Society shares this assessment:

"It is obvious that the treatment must often be individually adapted when there are several concurrent diseases. But basically, the poor results are unsatisfactory and we must focus our research on the reasons for this lack of progress. We have to carefully examine whether the quality of the simultaneous treatment of several diseases is good enough," says Frede Olesen.
