Comparisons between people in the same area for risks of advanced stage of cancer at diagnosis and general survival after cancer diagnosis found no associations between specific
mental disorder diagnoses and risk of cancer. However, people with severe mental disorders, depression, dementia, and substance use disorders had significantly worse survival after cancer diagnosis, independent of cancer stage at diagnosis and other potential factors.
