This chapter discusses the social and psychological issues for patients with advanced breast cancer. These issues may accompany the diagnosis and treatment of advanced breast cancer, and are both varied and complex. The concepts of psychiatric morbidity and psychological distress are introduced in the first section, while the rest of the chapter looks at screening for depression and the three main interventions for depression. The factors involved in the decision-making process and the possible effects of treatment on a patient are discussed as well.
