ASCO 2024 | How CBT can help manage hot flushes in men with prostate cancer receiving ADT

Simon Crabb, PhD, MBBS, University of Southampton, Southampton, UK, discusses the MANCAN2 trial and the role of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) in managing hot flushes in prostate cancer patients. Prior research indicates that the impact of hot flushes on patients, rather than their frequency, is most significant, particularly in relation to anxiety and depression. The trial suggests that CBT helps patients manage their hot flushes by providing strategies to cope with them when they occur. This management leads to improvements in quality of life, anxiety, and depression, rather than significantly reducing the frequency of hot flushes. This interview took place during the 2024 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Meeting in Chicago, IL.
