Almost all patients with cancer want to know their diagnosis and most patients also want to be informed about the chance that they will be cured. This does not imply that these patients want to hear the really bad news about their condition. Many patients, when they fear that their prognosis is rather poor, do not ask for precise information and do not hear it if it is provided by the doctor.
