Responding to The BMJ’s study suggesting that higher levels of psychological distress (anxiety and depression) may be associated with an increased risk of death from certain cancer, Macmillan Cancer Support's Chief Medical Officer Jane Maher said: "We speak to people with cancer every day and we know that they can often feel anxious and depressed. This can be for a number of different reasons. It might be that they are feeling anxious about the future, they might be having money worries or they might be experiencing other health problems as a result of their cancer, which are also impacting on their quality of life. "We urge anyone with cancer who is feeling anxious or depressed to contact Macmillan Support Line on 0808 808 0000 (Monday to Friday 9am-5pm) for help and advice or visit www.macmillan.org.uk"
