Breast cancer more aggressive in women who are stressed

Breast cancer spreads more aggressively in women who are stressed.  Fear, anxiety and isolation all play a part in determining just how quickly the tumour grows, researchers have discovered.
Researchers from the University of Illinois discovered the association between stress and aggressive tumour growth when they carried out a psychological profile on 989 women who had recently been diagnosed with breast cancer.
The researchers are puzzled by the association, however, and can’t explain how stress interacts with tumour growth.  They’re also not sure what came first: are the women more stressed because they have cancer, or did their stress bring on the cancer in the first place?

Whatever the reason for the Stress there is no doubt that Stress increases the tumour aggression. That is why you need to manage the stress. Take time out every day and learn to manage your stress. Here is a simple resource that can help you on your way.
