Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the changes in dietary habits in women with gynecological or breast cancer, and to analyze the role of some demographic factors, type of the malignant tumor, and the role of medical staff's advice in dietary behavior change of these women, after the diagnosis of cancer. A self-administered questionnaire-based retrospective study was performed, and 155 randomly selected patients, treated for gynecological or breast cancer, were involved. A self-developed questionnaire was used to measure the socio-demographic characteristics, the circumstances of visiting the physician, therapy, present health status and lifestyle before and after the diagnosis of neoplasm. More than three-fourths of the women reported changes in nutrition after the diagnosis of cancer. The consumption of fruits and vegetables increased in the highest proportion (70.3%). Women with higher education changed their diet in higher proportion (p=0.031) compared to women with lower education. Women who were advised to change their lifestyle by their therapists were about four times more likely (OR: 3.87; CI: 1.40-10.69 ) to change their nutrition. Patients with breast cancer changed three times more likely (OR: 3.21; CI: 1.05-9.84) their dietary habits than patients with gynecological cancer. The most influential proven factor to make cancer patients alter their diet was being advised for this by physicians. Thus, our study proved that physicians and nurses have a very important role in changing their cancer patients' nutritional habits into a healthier one.
