An oncopsychologist is a specialist dealing with questions of psychological assistance for cancer patients and their families. When patients hear the word "cancer," they frequently experience depression, melancholy, helplessness, and a lack of faith in their ability to recover. During the conversation, the specialist helps the patient accept the diagnosis and be ready to fight against the disease. During the rehabilitation, the patients who have finished treatment are recommended to attend a support group for cancer patients. The patient’s relatives can also consult an oncopsychologist if they need psychological support and advice on how to behave and help their dear person to cope with this difficult situation.
