My comments (because I had to have an opinion) are that:
- I do not think it is isolated to breast cancer patients. I think its probably across all cancer diagnoses and they just have not done a study yet to prove it.
- I think the people who say they did not have PTSD were still stressed. A cancer diagnosis is not something you can bury inside you and not react.
- Although the symptoms may fade over time, the person with the diagnosis has to learn to cope with the ongoing fears of cancer's return for life.
