Abstract: Psychiatric adaptation to cancer appears to be independent of specific diagnosis when studies lump all diagnoses together. However, vulnerable subgroups of patients have been found within the same diagnosis. Heterogeneity in psychiatric response to specific diagnosis of cancer may be important both in shedding light on the disease itself and in planning for interventions. Disease specific psychiatric and sexual morbidity has been examined in this study by detailed analysis of psychiatric, sexual and physiological attributes in patients with testis cancer in comparison with patients with Hodgkin's disease. The two patient groups experienced similar investigations, treatment and favourable prognoses, and are comparable in epidemiological characteristics.
