Cancer diagnosis, treatment, and follow up take a toll on both your mind and your body. It affects you and your loved ones in different ways. That's why we created the Behavioral Oncology Clinic.
Cancer is a complex disease process affecting patients in psychological, social, financial, and behavioral ways that can interfere with treatment plans and affect outcomes. The Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center extends its cancer care beyond the medical and surgical realms to involve lifestyle, social, and emotional aspects of our patients, care providers, and families.
Our new Behavioral Oncology Clinic serves patients diagnosed with cancer in need of psychological care due to adjustment difficulties, depression, anxiety, or other psychosocial stressors.
