Depression After Cancer Keeps Some From Follow-Up Care

The research linked depression to a lower rate of ovarian cancer screening, but there was no link between depression and less colorectal cancer screening. Other factors affecting ovarian cancer screening included a lack of English language skills, high costs of health care, unemployment and lack of relatives with cancer. Being single boosted the risk that the women didn't get screened for colorectal cancer.

"Regardless of depression . . . we need to work with these women to help them understand that they need to get more involved with their health care," Ramirez said in a news release from the American Association for Cancer Research. "We also have to get a better handle on the underpinnings of depression among cancer survivors. We have to ask the critical questions to make sure that these patients are not
