BSH 2017 | What are the causes of fatigue after cancer treatment?

Marije van der Lee

Marije van der Lee, PhD, from the Helen Dowling Institute, Utrecht, Netherlands, discusses the causes of fatigue after cancer treatment at the 2017 British Society for Haematology (BSH) Annual Scientific Meeting in Brighton, UK. She explains that this can be unrelated to the specific treatment. Dr van der Lee speaks about different factors which can influence fatigue during and after cancer treatment, including stress sensitization, immune activation, and fear of cancer recurrence, as well as behavioural factors.
