TEIXEIRA, Joana Margarida Pinheiro; COUTO, Germano Rodrigues; PRATA, Ana Paula  e  FERREIRA, Pedro Lopes. Quality of life of patients with prostate cancer. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2020, vol.serV, n.1, pp.e19063-e19063. ISSN 0874-0283.  http://dx.doi.org/10.12707/RIV19063.

Background: Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death from cancer in men. Its diagnosis and treatment can significantly change their life and affect their quality of life. Objective: To assess the changes in the quality of life of patients with prostate cancer, from diagnosis to the 6th month of treatment. Methodology: A descriptive, analytical, and longitudinal study was conducted with prostate cancer patients, using HRQoL, SF-12, and EQ-5D scales in four moments. Results: Changes were found in HRQoL dimensions across the four moments, as well as in functioning and symptoms. Conclusion: This study provides new evidence on dimensions of HRQoL of patients with prostate cancer, namely emotional and social functions, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, insomnia, constipation and diarrhea symptoms, sexual activity, urinary, bowel symptoms, and hormonal treatment-related symptoms, from diagnosis to the 6th month of treatment. Health professionals should intervene in the most affected domains to improve the quality of life of prostate cancer patients.
