The Problem

Since long ago it has been known that there’s a relationship between mental distress and cancer, however many studies have been made sometimes with conflicting results.

The Action

In this study we can find a different approach to the study of the relationship between cancer and psychological distress, which used unpublished individual participant data from 16 community based prospective cohort studies which used the same methods to ascertain the psychological distress, covariates, and cancer. In contrast to the more common study level (meta-analytical technique).

The Outcome

This innovative approach to this health problem was key to find a clearer link for certain types of cancer like colorectal cancer, prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer, oesophageal cancer and leukaemia to psychological distress.
