Psycho-oncology equally involves patients and their family circle. It takes account, not only of the neuro-psychological effects of disease and/or its treatment, but also of the consequences on lifestyle, thought patterns, relationships with others, etc. It is ensured by psychiatrists and psychologists who intervene with cancer patients and their close circle, during and after treatment.

Its aim is to consider and offer support in all the psychological, psychiatric, behavioural, family and social dimensions associated with cancer.
