Oncological disease poses a great physical and mental burden on the patient. Nobody should have to deal with it alone. Quality communication with the physician and well-adjusted treatment, family support, important information about legal, financial or social help, contacts for patient groups and, if necessary, help of a psychologist or psychiatrist are very important for the patient in this period.
