New York: In a new survey of cancer patients, many people who`d had problems with their treatment never said anything to the doctor they thought was responsible -- and almost none formally reported the problems to the hospital.Patients cited delays in treatment, surgical complications and other issues related to medical care, in addition to communication barriers or breakdowns between them and their doctors, as the most common potentially harmful problems.There could be many reasons why cancer patients don`t always bring up concerns about those issues during treatment, according to the study`s lead author."Sometimes there`s a situation where they`re really still thankful for the care that they got, and so they don`t want to hurt anybody by saying, ‘Everything was great, except...` Or they don`t want to do harm to their relationship (with their doctor)," said Kathleen Mazor, from Meyers Primary Care Institute and the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester.
