Abstract

Prostate cancer is the most prevalent type of cancer in men in developed countries (excluding nonmelanoma skin cancer) [1]. Whilst the physical aftermath of prostate cancer and treatment has been well documented [2]; little is known about the influence of psycho-social factors on health related quality of life, anxiety and depression in men affected by this disease [3]. Developing an understanding in this area can help to identify men who are at high risk of inadequate support and suggest directions for appropriately targeted interventions. Moreover, little is known about how men affected by prostate cancer mobilise social support in their self-management behaviours over time [4]. This is the first study to test the effects of coping and social support on HRQoL and emotional outcome, and assessed the self-management behaviours of men affected by prostate cancer overtime
