What side effects are patients really experiencing after cancer treatment?

The Bedford Real World Study asked a large, real-world group of patients to rank their troublesome symptoms from cancer treatment and explored how this relates to patients’ decisions to initiate self-help nutritional strategies.

Over 70% of the study participants on hormone treatments had 1 or more troublesome symptoms, with over 50% experiencing joint pains; this is more than 3 times higher than expected from usual trial sources. This information has prompted the development of a study to investigate ways to reduce arthritis for patients.

Watch Professor Robert Thomas discuss the full results presented at the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC)/International Society of Oral Oncology (ISOO) 2016 Annual Meeting.
