Abstract

In the last decade special attention was devoted to patients whose cancer disease was diagnosed during adolescence and in young adults (T/AYAs). In virtue of lack of uniform standards, this group of patients obtains considerably worse effects of treatment. Additionally, during therapy specific for this group mental needs are not catered for, what impairs quality of life. In this paper, medical aspects of cancer diagnosis in T/AYAs group were presented, with special emphasis on psychooncological care that this patients should be taken off.
