Abstract [en]

Coping, psychosocial well-being, situation-specific anxiety and cancer-related worry were assessed in 197 consecutive cancer patients attending follow-up visits. Participants completed questionnaire on three occasions: at the follow-up visit, some days later (n = 175) and three weeks later (n = 125). High levels of coping styles 'Anxious Preoccupation' and 'Helplessness/Hopelessness' were associated with low levels of psychosocial well-being, more situation-specific anxiety and more cancer-related worry. High levels of 'Fighting Spirit' and 'Fatalistic' were found to be associated with high psychosocial well-being and, for 'Fighting Spirit', also with less cancer-related worry. Patients with a 'dismal' prognosis were found to have higher levels of 'Helplessness/Hopelessness' than patients with a more 'favorable' prognosis. Clinical implications of these findings are discussed.
