Testicular cancer survivors supportive care needs and use of online support: a cross-sectional survey
Supportive Care in Cancer, 03/05/2012Bender JL et al.
At least one in four testicular cancer survivors has unmet needs related to financial support, body image, stress, being a cancer survivor, and fear of recurrence. A web–based resource may be a useful strategy to consider given the high prevalence of social media use in this sample and their desire for online support. Efforts are needed to raise awareness about online peer support resources and to overcome barriers to their use.
