AbstractPsychosocial support and adjustment to cancer in 115 Chinese patients with gynecological malignancies were studied by interviews using semi-structured and structured questionnaires before commencement of treatment. Ninety per cent of patients had emotional support with 72% coming from family members, while 77% of the patients said that they were clearly informed of their diagnosis. The majority of our patients (63%) did not wish to see a counsellor. Psychological outcome of the patients was good, with less than 21% having expression of anxiety or depression. Social adjustment was less favorable; 42% of women had a reduction in leisure activity. The majority of married couples maintained a good marital relationship even though 78% had reduction or cessation of their sexual activity. Good emotional support was associated with fewer neurotic symptoms. Though there was no statistical significance demonstrated, the good psychosocial support and the favorable psychological outcome in this group of patients indicated the likelihood of a positive relationship between the two.
