Depression in cancer patients

Three-quarters of cancer patients who are clinically depressed do not get the psychological therapy they need, according to research in the Lancet. This "huge unmet need" is partly due to a focus on physical symptoms at the expense of good mental healthcare, researchers say. They argue depression is often overlooked but could be treated at a fraction of the cost of cancer drugs. Charities say the current situation is "heartbreaking". People often wrongly assume that major depression is part of a natural reaction to cancer - but this is much more than transient sadness, the Edinburgh and Oxford university researchers say.
