Purpose: Cancer is an increasingly important health problem, and is second only to cardiovascular disease as cause of death. Cancer diagnosis causes significant changes in patients and their families, and social relationships are affected. For this reason, we examined the lives of patients subsequent to their diagnosis and sought to determine any changes in their lifestyles.
