ABSTRACT
The prevalence of insomnia is high among cancer patients. However, insomnia tends to be perceived as less important problem by patients themselves as well as clinicians. In this article, cancer-specific precipitating and perpetuating factors for insomnia, development of cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia especially for cancer patients, and pharmacological treatment of insomnia for cancer patients will be discussed. And also, various primary sleep disorders including circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorder, sleep-related breathing disorder, restless legs syndrome, and narcolepsy or idiopathic hypersomnia will be explained in the context of cancer.
Keywords: Cognitive-behavioral therapy | Cancer | Insomnia
