Childhood Cancers and Quality of Life

Begül Yağcı Küpeli, Serhan Küpeli.

With the improvement of survival rates in childhood cancer, attempts are made to develop less toxic treatment modalities and priority is given to the studies about this subject. Health related quality of life is defined as a multidimensional concept involving physical, emotional, mental and social well being as well as perception of the effects caused by disease and its treatment. In this review, we evaulated the health related quality of life and the factors affecting it both in patients receiving cancer treatment and childhood cancer survivors. Furthermore, an emphasize was made to the necessity of parent attendance, parent psychopathology and ways of coping evaluation in the assesment of quality of life in children.

Key words: Health related quality of life, childhood and adolescent cancers
