Coping With Depression And Cancer
Dr. M. Beatriz Currier, Medical Director of Cancer Patient Support Center with Miami Cancer Institute, says cancer is a medical condition that needs to be diagnosed and treated appropriately. “It is not due to poor coping skills or a weakness in someone's character," she adds. The specialist affirms with good treatment most patients do very well and with good quality of life. Dr. Currier recommends patients to be candid with their relatives and to seek at least an initial consult with either their primary care physician or someone who helps clarify diagnosis.
