Both from a scientific and common sense point of view, there are many ideas about how patients adjust to a life-threatening disease such as cancer. However, the empirical evidence on this topic is still elusive, especially about the consequences that patients may experience in the long term. The present thesis addresses patients’ physical and psychosocial adjustment to cancer, in the first year after diagnosis onward to eight years after diagnosis.
