Well-being of cancer survivors.


One hundred and four cancer survivors 3 years past their last cancer treatment reported a significantly lower sense of self-control and more general health worries than a matched sample of healthy controls. The two groups did not differ on variables of anxiety, depression, positive well being, and vitality or on two composite scores of mental and general well-being. The well-being scores of the survivors from three geographically distinct cancer centers revealed no significant differences among centers on the composite or any of the individual subscores. Sociodemographic and treatment variables revealed only marriage and no change in job were significantly related to the amount of general well-being experienced.
