‘Cancer patients play more important role in future research agenda'
TILBURG - Cancer patients determine more and more the topics in cancer research in The Netherlands. Therefore, it is important for researchers to share their data, with both researchers and especially with patients. Prof. dr. Lonneke van de Poll, head of the research department of the Eindhoven Cancer Registry, and professor ‘Cancer Epidemiology and Survivorship' at Tilburg University, noticed th...
Cancer incidence and mortality patterns in SE-Europe: Gaps persist
Cancer registration coverage and cancer control programmes in South Eastern (SE) Europe, embracing about six new EU member states, remain thin, despite a relatively high incidence and mortality burden from avoidable cancers, particularly in males. We assembled the most recent cancer registry data to estimate the burden of the 17 most common cancers in the region, from Slovenia to Cyprus and Malta.
Information provision and patient reported outcomes in cancer survivors
TILBURG - On March 1st 2013 Olga Husson defended her PhD-thesis entitled 'Information provision and patient reported outcomes in cancer survivors: with a special focus on thyroid cancer. Her thesis describes the results of studies on the information provision to different groups of cancer survivors in different phases of their disease. Several areas of information provision were experienced as ins...
Rising incidence, no change in survival from thyroid cancer Netherlands
EINDHOVEN - According to a recently published study of Husson et al. in Endocrine-Related Cancer, the incidence of thyroid cancer increased significantly in The Netherlands since 1989. All persons ≥ 15 years with thyroid cancer, diagnosed in the period 1989-2009 and recorded in The Netherlands Cancer Registry were included in the study (n=8021).
Relationship of BMI with quality of life among endometrial patients
A cross-sectional study among 666 endometrial cancer survivors on the relation between BMI and quality of life was conducted using the PROFILES (Patient Reported Outcomes Following Initial Treatment and Long term Evaluation of Survivorship) registry. Results showed that BMI had an important contribution to the health-related and endometrial-specific quality of life of endometrial cancer survivors....
Results EUROCOURSE Project (part 1, 2 and 3)
EINDHOVEN – Together with the European Network of Cancer Registries (ENCR), the Comprehensive Cancer Centre South has developed a calendar overviewing the developments between 1988 and 2012. The calendar also summarizes the most important results from the EUROCOURSE project, which is a EU project coordinated by the Eindhoven Cancer Registry/Comprehensive Cancer Centre South. EUROCOURSE is a collab...
PROFILES: Fatigue among short- and long-term thyroid cancer survivors
EINDHOVEN - According to a recently published study of Husson et al. in Thyroid, short-term and long-term TC survivors report higher levels of fatigue compared to an age- and sex-matched normative population. All patients diagnosed with thyroid cancer between 1990-2008, as registered in the Eindhoven Cancer Registry, received a survey from their (ex-) attending specialist on health-related qualit...
Second primary cancers in patients with previous colorectal cancer
Compared with the general population, individuals with previous colorectal cancer have a higher risk for a second cancer in all subsites of the colon and rectum. Among long-term survivors older than 50 years, risk remains elevated only in the proximal colon. Further studies should be encouraged to develop a suitable surveillance method for aging, high-risk, long-term colorectal cancer survivors.
Scalp cooling leads to less hair loss and decrease of wig wearing
EINDHOVEN - Scalp cooling significantly reduces chemotherapy-induced alopecia and wig and head cover use. However, scalp-cooled patients could safe costs if they should postpone wig purchase. Our study showed that 38% of the scalp-cooled patients did not use their wig. The relatively long duration of alopecia, the wish of many patients to camouflage or rather prevent it and the 40% reduction for h...
Prostate cancer: treatment and survival varies by social class
EINDHOVEN - Socioeconomic status (SES) affected treatment selection and overall survival for patients with prostate cancer in the Southern Netherlands. Presence of comorbidities only partly contributed to these differences. The relation with other SES-associated factors (eg, ability to understand medical information or to cope with health problems) remains to be explored.
