According to a new study published in Psycho-oncology, obesity was related to poorer psychosocial health among older adults diagnosed with breast cancer or prostate cancer. The study included 4159 patients who received care at a comprehensive cancer center in California. Across all patients, the most frequent problems were related to depression, anxiety, pain, sleeping, finances, and fear of medical procedures.
