This study investigates the risk for psychiatric disorders among 5-year survivors of AYA cancer. We report a significant burden of psychiatric disorders and look at unique trajectories among different types of psychiatric disorders to highlight the high burden and dynamic needs of these young survivors. We believe there is a critical need for targeted preventive strategies that will mitigate the risk of poor quality of life and potentially fatal outcomes due to long-term psychiatric disorders.
The burden of late effects and related risk factors in adolescent and young adult cancer survivors: A scoping review
Ryder-Burbidge, C; Diaz, RL; Barr, RD; Gupta, S; Nathan, P; McKillop, S; Fidler-Benaoudia, MM
In total, 652 studies were identified, of which 106 were included in the review: 23 for second cancers; 34 for chronic conditions; and 54 for deaths. The studies found that AYA cancer survivors are at an increased risk of second cancers, chronic conditions and deaths. In particular, the following factors increased risk: radiation exposure for second cancers; younger attained age and earlier calendar period of diagnosis for chronic conditions; and non-Hispanic Black or Hispanic, low socioeconomic status, and earlier calendar period of diagnosis for deaths.
