Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVES: The purpose was to explore negative and positive consequences of cancer during adolescence experienced two years after diagnosis. METHODS: Two years after diagnosis 38 persons, 15-21 years old, were asked two questions over the telephone: What, if anything, is bad for you due to the cancer disease? and What, if anything, is good for you due to the cancer disease? The answers were analysed by content analysis. RESULTS: Four categories of negative experiences were identified: a problematic body; unpleasant thoughts and feelings; outside the circle of friends; and difficulties with schoolwork. Six categories of positive experiences were identified: a more positive view of life; good self-esteem; knowledge and experience with regard to disease and hospital care; good relations; broader perspectives; and material gains. CONCLUSIONS: Two years after diagnosis those struck by cancer during adolescence experience not only a number of negative, but also positive, consequences of the cancer disease and its treatment.
