Stress affects the body and the person recovering from cancer needs to be in a stress-free environment. There have been cases of depression among cancer survivors. That is why it is important to watch out for any signs. http://www.zoloftsertralinebirthdefects.com

Post cancer depression is common, especially when treatment has changed a person permanently. imo, depression also has a link in developing cancer, not a cause of course not but a contributing factor in someone who is likely to develop cancer. in my personal experience i was suffering from depression just before cancer diagnosis. i'm uncertain whether it was caused by my being physically run-down because of the cancer or whether it was a contribution to the cancer. Either way my immunity was lower than it should have been (from a blood test) and specific immune cells are the first line against cancer, as cancer cells occur in the body anywhere, anytime but don't develop into a tumour because these cells fight the mutant cells off. Stress/depression has been linked to being physically under-par and vice-versa.
