dc.description.abstractOBJECTIVE Study of the emergence of bone pathology as a latent health need in the population of cancer patients in Cyprus. METHOD A pilot quantitative cross-sectional study was conducted with a casual sample of 107 oncological patients from the service of the Cyprus Anticancer Society nursing home and the Oncology Day Care Center of the Bank of Cyprus. RESULTS A higher proportion of women had not undergone bone density testing, and women run a greater risk of fracture. The women had an average bone density of 13.04 (TA=12.3) and men 13.04 (TA=12.53). CONCLUSIONS Health professionals play a critical role in the identification of patients with cancer who are at risk of bone loss. Reduction of the risk factors and prevention of fractures have a huge impact on the quality of life of these patients.
