“Any major disease brings anxiety and worry, but few diseases are associated with such dread as cancer, with its imagined inevitable sequel of certain death, pain, lingering and suffering. Communication with cancer patients can be difficult because the subject is emotionally charged, information complex, treatment usually toxic and the outcome uncertain. One of the most rewarding task for the oncologist is to set the disease in its right context, to explain the treatment, to give enough information at the correct rate and time, to sustain hope and to be accessible, competent, open-minded and above all kind."
