Cohort characteristics of the epidemiological population based

Table 1.
The mean age of patients with clinically relevant anxiety at gap-27 first radiotherapy session was 56 ± 12.1 years (range, 27.9–73.6 years); 71% (n = 29) were married or cohabiting, 76% (n = 31) had completed high-school education, and 22% (n = 9) worked part or full time. The mean time since diagnosis was 3.6 ± 2.0 months. The majority (85%, n = 35) of patients had stage I or II disease. Most patients (78%, n = 32) had undergone lumpectomy and approximately half (44%, n = 18) had received chemotherapy. Radiotherapy treatment, on average, lasted 23 ± 2.6 sessions. Hormonotherapy was scheduled for 66% (n = 27) of patients.
