Pre-surgical stress management provides biological as well as psychological benefits in men with prostate cancer undergoing radical prostatectomy.

Houston-Pre-surgical stress management (SM) provides biological as well as psychological benefits in men with prostate cancer undergoing radical prostatectomy, according to results of a randomized, controlled study conducted by researchers from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston.

Mood was assessed with the Profile of Mood States (POMS) survey administered at baseline (1 month before surgery), 1 week prior to surgery, and on the morning of surgery. Men in the SM group reported lower POMS scores prior to surgery than men in the SC group.
