"Psychology and Cancer" in Academic Encounters by Bernard Seal discusses how psychology is linked to cancer.

Cancer leads many people to death because the altered cells destroy organs. From scientific discovery, we know that certain conditions can link to cancer, such as drinking, smoking and radiation. We can increase the chance of survival by doing regular body checks. Personal emotion can also affect the progression of cancer. Instead of keeping negative emotions inside, letting them out can help people cope with cancer. Immunity can cope with small cancers. In contrast, if your emotions cause a decrease in the immune function, the condition will turn worse.

According to a study of mice, we know that stress from anxiety and helplessness can speed up the growth of a cancer and decrease the immune functions. Behaviors of depressed persons, like smoking and drinking, also raise the risk of cancer.

To help these patients, programs that can give the feeling of controlling their destinies and creating 'fighting spirits' are rapidly expanding, and which can increase immunity, raising the chance of survival.
