Question: Should I marry someone with cancer?

(Reuters Health) - Married people with cancer have better survival odds than their single peers - and not for money reasons, a U.S. study suggests. Unmarried men were 27 percent more likely to die of their tumors, and single women were 19 percent more likely, the study found.

Overall, depression and anxiety were associated with a significantly increased risk of cancer incidence (adjusted RR: 1.13, 95% CI: 1.06-1.19), cancer-specific mortality (1.21, 1.16-1.26), and all-cause mortality in cancer patients (1.24, 1.13-1.35).
